Next week is Options Taster Week. It is an opportunity for our Year 9 pupils to experience all the subjects offered at KS4 that are both compulsory and option choices. In lessons all week teachers will discuss with pupils their GCSE and vocational courses offered. This is a really exciting opportunity for Year 9 to sample the subjects that they may study over the next two years at Sharples and t is the most important decision they will make in their education so far. Thursday next week will see the first Options Taster Day at Sharples. This is where pupils will take part in taster lessons in new subjects that pupils have not yet encountered at KS3.  These include Health Care, Engineering, Media and Computer Science. The Options Evening for parents and pupils is Thursday 5th February 5-7pm. We hope that all our Year 9 pupils take full advantage of next week's options taster event and start to think about their decisions for their studies at KS4.
