Options Assemblies & Reflection Booklet

Students have been asked to watch one of these each week during their tutor / catch-up session on Mondays. Students have been set a GCSE options reflection booklet to complete in their tutor group Google Classroom alongside viewing the assemblies – you can download and view a copy here: GCSE Options Personal Reflection Booklet
