Student Zone

Year 9

Throughout Y9, we aim to inspire our girls to aim high and dream big! We have a wide and exciting variety of events planned throughout the year to help foster a love of learning, an inquiring mind-set and the resilience to face new challenges head on. We believe that Y9 gives everyone a chance to start dreaming about future career paths and to truly understand that the world is waiting for them with open arms.

Ace Day at Hull University gives the girls a taste of what it is like to go to University; they tour the campus, talk to students about what it takes to achieve a degree place and explore how exciting and different life is as a student.

Also in conjunction with Hull University, we are privileged to undertake a variety of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths opportunities throughout the year, including ‘Fame Lab’ (a National Competition for budding Science theorists!).

We offer a selection of Arts-based activities and opportunities as well with drama, dance and music performances and writing poetry with a view to becoming published alongside visits by professional authors and entry to a selection of book awards and opportunities to discuss literature with likeminded people from across the county …as well as country!

Having selected their Option subjects to study alongside English Language and Literature, Maths, Science, Languages, Geography/History and PE, pupils are embarking on a challenging, stimulating and exciting journey where they will become more confident and adept at the subjects they already love and discover new skills, mastery and unknown joy in new areas of the curriculum!
