At Ysgol Aberconwy we aim to prioritise every student in years 9 and 11 when it is time to make decisions about options. This year will be no different even if our circumstances are still affected by Covid-19. As a result, we have considered how we can provide a personal approach to the process whilst keeping everyone safe.
We are making the options information and applications forms available electronically on our school website rather than as paper copies. To see the current options booklets and application forms, please use the links below (please note that the booklets and forms are updated in January each year for the current year group):
The timeline for each year group has been set out and can be seen below, so that all stakeholders are clear about the process and expectations. You will see that there are various points in the process where we plan to offer one to one discussions with subject teachers, form teachers and staff involved in the option process.
We hope you find this approach informative and easy to use. If you have any questions that you cannot find an answer to by reading through the material provided, then please contact Mrs Sewell or the year team.
