Dear Year 11 parents,
We would like to invite you to our ‘Making the Right Choices’ information evening on Sunday 4th March at 5.30pm. As you will be aware we will be asking your son/daughter to select the subjects they wish to study at the IB level this term. This is a major decision which will contribute to the next two years of their life and further studies, and as such we would like to offer you some guidance and advice in selecting the right subjects with your child.
Your child has already received a number of presentations by staff to give them an overview of the variety of courses we have on offer. This is to ensure students have all of the information necessary to make an informed decision about their education. You will find the IB Subject Guide for you to download and read at home on our website and app, so you too are informed about the variety of IB subjects offered at The Sultan’s School.
After the information evening there will be a full Parent Teacher Conference where you can discuss details with subject teachers, the Head of Faculty and Senior Managers. This will end at 8pm.
Students will make their subject selection online via a Google Forms survey. The survey will be available to complete and submit from Monday 5th March and will close on Monday 12th March at 3pm. All surveys generate a date and time of submission, which will be used to place students on courses on a first come first served basis. Any student failing to complete the survey in the designated time frame runs the risk of not getting their first subject choices. You will find the link to the Year 12 IB Options survey below:
You will find on the back of this letter the groupings of IB subjects. Students must select one subject from each group to study. Once the Google form has been completed the students will have scheduled individual meetings with both myself and Dr. Adnan (careers).
We look forward to welcoming you on 4th March at 5.30pm.
Mr Charles Hearsum
