The subjects and qualifications you study over Years 9, 10 and 11 will affect how you spend your time during your next three years at Bentley Wood. It could also help set you up for the career or college course you want later on.
To help you decide what to study in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11, start by asking yourself what you enjoy doing and what you’re good at.
The choices are yours, but most people look for advice on important decisions. There’s plenty available, but you should do as much as you can yourself to research all the options.
Parents, carers, family and friends probably know you best, so talking to them can help you work out what might suit you. But remember that they won’t always know a lot about careers or courses you’re interested in. If you’re planning to work towards a particular career or college course, don’t be put off just because it means taking a different direction from friends or family members.
Subject teachers know exactly what studying a subject in Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 involves, and can advise whether it’s right for you.
Mr Robinson (Careers Leade) can guide you towards advice about which subjects and qualifications are useful for particular careers.
Mr Roach, the school’s Careers Adviser, will be at Parents/Options Evening for you to ask any questions.
