As Head of Year it gives me great pleasure in working with student during their last year in ‘Key Stage 3’ before they move onto GCSE study.
As the oldest students in Key Stage 3, Year 9s play an important role in our school community in what is clearly a critical year.
As they embark on their final year in Key Stage 3, students have to make some important decisions that will set them on the pathway to GCSE. It is vital that students work hard in all lessons to ensure they have a wealth of subjects available from which to select their ‘Beyond 14’ options at the beginning of January.
Additionally, students will be given the opportunity to visit the historic World War I battlefields of Ypres in Year 9. Students will explore the connection the school has with the conflict through ‘The Old Boys’ who fought and died at Ypres. This outstanding experience is not to be missed.
The school’s extra-curricular enrichment programme will once again be packed with a number of opportunities and I encourage students to immerse themselves in this programme as it is an integral part of school life at Coopers Coborn.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at school if you have any further questions about Year 9.

Head of Year 9
