Year 9 Week 9

Page Last Updated on 8th June 2020 08:40 am by intranetadmin

All Subjects Summary

Work resources are now located entirely on google classrooms, please ensure you have enrolled onto them and you are completing all work assigned.

For year 9 students we are now only expecting you to complete work for your chosen subject (The table below has now been updated to reflect the additional subjects)

Parents should have received a statement via email confirming GCSE choices. If you have not received it, a copy is also available under reports within the Sims Parent App or can also be obtained by contacting

If any of you are having difficulty completing work via google classroom please take a moment to watch this video:


Below you will find a brief summary of all the work that has been set for this week.

There is work for each of the lessons that students would have had at school, however, we would ask both guardians and students to consider wellbeing and although we would want the work to be completed to support their education when we return to school, please take time for other activities such as cooking, mindfulness etc and ensure exercise forms part of your everyday routine (Joe Wicks is leading a 9am workout every morning on the body coach you tube site.)

Although we feel that this school work is extremely important for all the students we also appreciate that their mental health is so important during these unknown times. We have recently sent an email to all students put together by the Mental Health Ambassadors, reminding students that there is information, advice and guidance on the Chase Care pages and useful numbers for organisations offering vital support such as Kooth.
