Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 8 Options

As you are aware, due to the coronavirus outbreak we have had to cancel our Options Evening. In order to enable social distancing, the Options process will be carried out online. We are writing to inform you of this in advance.

Please do not send or bring in any paper Options forms to the school. If you have already done this, we will still need you to follow the online process.

Over the next week, you should look at the Options booklet with your child and discuss the choices that they might want to make. If you have lost your paper copy of the Options booklet, it can be found online at

On Friday 27th March you will receive detailed information about how to log on and make Options choices via Parent Mail.

Our Online Options window will launch on Monday 30th March at 10am. Parents and carers will have five days to make Options choices, with the window closing on Friday 3rd April at 10am.

After this, any parent or carer who has not made Options choices will be contacted by the school to make their selections.

We recognise that this is a new system and ask parents for their support at this time. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact Upper Site Reception and ask to speak to Mrs. Bennett, or email

Yours faithfully,

Mrs. L. Bennett

Head of Lower School
