Welcome to Year 9
Year 9 is a year of crucial importance for our pupils; a pivotal year, during which many important decisions will be made. As they prepare to make the transition from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4, they will be deciding upon their options for Years 10 and 11. They will embark upon the courses and qualifications which are likely to shape their futures. Year 9 will require maturity and a good deal of dedication and application. We will be here to help and guide them every step of the way in making these important decisions.
Year 9 will be a time for much hard work but it will also provide many opportunities for enjoyment and a time to seek out new experiences. Our pupils are invited and openly encouraged to take part in the many clubs and activities provided for them by our dedicated staff. Special opportunities are also available; the Enterprise Day at St. Mary’s College, the “Maths in Motion” Roller Coaster Day, the retreat to Castlerigg Manor in Keswick and Disneyland Paris to name but a few. Many of our departments organise educational visits which suit a wide range of budgets. Our pupils will remember these experiences for many years to come, often describing them as the “highlight” of their time at St. Augustine’s.
