Year 9 Parent Information
Year 9 Guided Choices
In Year 9 students will personalise their curriculum by choosing some of the courses they will study in Year 10 and 11.
To ensure that all students can compete for university places, apprenticeships and career opportunities, all students will study:
Core (English Maths, Science, Learning for life and PE),
Entitlement which is a Humanities subject (Geography or History) and a Language (French or Spanish)
Personalised Choice of other subjects. Students will be able to pick both History and Geography subjects if they want to, as well as both languages if they want to.
At all stages staff will be on hand to answer questions and give guidance. By following this process we are sure that all students will have a more personalised and appropriate curriculum at Fakenham Academy, leading to more and varied opportunities in the rest of their lives.
