GCSE Choices Evening at Farlington

January 19, 2017

On Tuesday 7th February, Farlington will be hosting its annual GCSE Choices Evening for Year 9 pupils, as a preparation for deciding which of the 21 qualifications on offer girls would like to study from September 2017.

GCSE Choices is open not only to current parents and pupils, but anyone who might be considering moving from another school or into the independent sector for the first time.

The event, which parents attend with their daughters, will begin with wine and soft drinks and a presentation led by Headmistress, Louise Higson, and Head of Curriculum & Choices, David Walker-Smith.

Afterwards, there will be stands at which everyone can chat to subject specialists and student ambassadors about what each GCSE involves – whether it is a new subject or a familiar one. Girls and parents will also receive a copy of the latest edition of Farlington’s GCSE Choices Booklet, which contains all the information needed to make informed decisions.

“This is a really worthwhile evening,” said Mr Walker-Smith, “and helps Year 9 pupils to make their first grown-up choices – ones which will have a significant impact on their futures.”

Choices Evening starts at 7.30pm and takes place in The Learning Zone, Farlington’s newly refurbished Senior School Hall. If you are not already at Farlington and would like to attend this event, please email our Registrar on registrar@farlingtonschool.com for an invitation.
