Welcome to Year 9

I would like to introduce myself as Year Leader to Year 9 by firstly saying that this is a vital year for our students as they will be choosing their options for GCSE. We have already started the term with high expectations and I hope that our students will focus on their learning throughout year 9.

All of our students have the opportunity to attend lunchtime and after school clubs and a list will be published on our website shortly for parents to view. We are excited to be running an event that will enable students to sign up for extra- curricular activities, these are key to developing skills such as commitment, timekeeping, socialising, working in a team and dedication.

The term has started fantastically with 68 of our year 9 students receiving training to become Humanutopia Heroes, they then delivered a day’s programme to year 6’s from the local community. It was great to see them excel in their new roles. We also have many year 9 Learning Leaders that will be touring prospective students at our annual open evening on Tuesday 13th September.

Our mission statement is ‘Aim high, work hard and be kind’, we hope that our students will achieve this and your support is greatly appreciated with all matters relating to school life. If you have any questions or would like to contact the year 9 team your child’s form tutor is your first point of communication, just click on the email link next to their name.

A further ‘newsletter’ will be published to inform you of updates and information termly; this will also be available on the school website.
Thank you for your continued support with Marriotts School and year 9.
Miss J Hearn
