Year 9 is the year of opportunities and challenges; choosing options for GCSE and widening school experiences as well as participation. Students have the chance to take part in a variety of projects and trips.
- STEM - Trips are organised by the Student Aspirations Project Manager and occur several times in the year.
- Duke of Edinburgh Award - This is a great experience to learn and develop new skills as well as putting these skills onto your CV.
- The Grit & Rock project - This project uses rock climbing as a medium to increase resilience and confidence and at the end of the course students are taken on a trip to Wales or France. The last two Year 9 cohorts found the experience both challenging and rewarding.
Central + “There are so many chances to attend dozens of clubs such as horse-riding, ice-skating and cooking. All these activities provide you with life skills. I know for a fact that horse-riding is a great club to attend.” – Jessie, 9I
"In Year 9 you also get to choose some of your own subjects to do in Years 10 and 11, which is great as you get to do subjects that YOU enjoy. Overall, there is a lot going on that you can be involved in; it is a lot of fun so come and be a part of it!" Students of 9Q
