Friday 24th January was Enterprise and Options day for Year 9, who took part in an energetic morning of Enterprise supported by the team and Business professionals from G-First. Working in small teams the students were tasked with creating a technical product of the future and presenting their idea at the end of the morning.
The winning team were from Haywardsend girls house who will be travelling to the Regional Finals at GCHQ on Friday 1st May and will compete with other Gloucestershire schools.
The afternoon event was our annual GCSE Options Fair, which provided all Year 9 students, their Parents’ and Guardians, the opportunity to talk to subject teachers and Year 11 student representatives to find out more about the content and structure of the GCSE courses on offer. Both students and parents found the afternoon event hugely valuable in supporting the process of choosing GCSE options.
