Year 9 Parents’ Evening


On Thursday 25th February 2021 we will be holding our Year 9 Parents’ Evening from 3.30pm - 6pm. This is an important evening and provides you with an opportunity to speak to your child’s Form Tutor.

Please make appointments using the online appointment booking system.



A very warm welcome to all of our year 9 parents and students.

This section of our school website has been created to provide you and your child with the relevant information about the choices available to students in Year 9 for their GCSE options.

The usual ways in which students will go through the process of choosing suitable options will be different this year. However, we are committed to ensuring that the process is rigorous and as helpful as can possibly be to assist students in making individual choices, that are right for them. We aim to offer guidance that can help parents to sufficiently support their child with these decisions.

The curriculum at St Anne’s Academy reflects the demands of the National Curriculum and is designed to provide all students with a broad, balanced and relevant education. Throughout our curriculum we aim for our students to be hardworking, respectful, act with integrity and have high aspirations. Student’s growth of these core values are developed across all aspects of their school curriculum. We want all our students, regardless of their background or previous social and academic experience, to leave school as well qualified, self-regulated and confident young adults who are ready to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society.

Our curriculum is led by, collaborated on and delivered by highly skilled and passionate subject specialists who are committed to delivering:

Intelligent sequencing – our teachers plan their schemes of work around knowledge, skills and understanding
Tailored learning activities – teachers deliver lessons where all pupil learn and make good progress.
Effective formative assessment – our teachers regularly review pupil learning and use data to inform the next stage of their teaching.
Supporting spiritual and personal wellbeing – our teachers promote imagination, creativity and insight so that our students enjoy school.

This means that our curriculum in every subject is planned and delivered to ensure students leave with exceptional outcomes, both in their examinations and in their personal development. We ask every pupil to live and work by our personal values as well as leaving with high currency qualifications which will prepare them for their next stage in life.

In order to ensure that, in making their option choices, your child takes into account their academic progress, interests and career aspirations, they will be receiving guidance from a range of staff including their form tutor, subject teachers, curriculum leaders and careers staff.

The options choice system offers a wide range of choices, drawn from the Creative Arts, Wellbeing and Humanities Faculties.
