Student Support: Year 9

Year 9 marks the beginning of an exciting time for students at RFSS. Our focus is on developing students' independence, resilience, and encouraging self-reflection and personal responsibility. Our approach to GCSE options is one which encourages students to make informed choices about their education and their future. This begins with students sampling a wide variety of subjects before making their final GCSE option choices after Christmas.

Our Personal Development Programme creates opportunities for students to explore career aspirations, personal identity, and provides the tools to manage physical and mental wellbeing. Form tutors play an important role in advising and supporting students in all aspects of school life.


As always we have high expectations of all students in Year 9, and we continue to promote a culture of kindness and mutual respect to celebrate success.
