Year 9

In year 9 our pupils concentrate on developing their Enterprise Skills.

Every Year 9 will take part in the National Enterprise Challenge where groups compete for the chance to present a business idea to a panel of nationally recognised business leaders.

Pupils should be starting to think in more detail about their options Post-16 and should visit our Careers Convention or any websites listed to find more information.

All Year 9 pupils will have the chance to participate in Work Discovery Week and in targetted speaker talks and visits to local businesses such as Tyne Tees and Software City. A selected group of Year 9 pupils will also complete the Nissan Industrial Cadetship designed to promote careers in Engineering.

In the spring term our Year 9 pupils will complete a Pathways Program. This is designed to help them make sensible option choices ready to begin key stage 4.
