Message to Parents/Guardians of Year 9 Students

To: the parents/guardians of all year 9 students

We have had a few queries about a letter sent directly to all year 9 students from Sandwell Council. Just to reassure you this is a standard letter which the Department for Education has mandated all councils to send to all year 9 students nationally where there are UTCs locally. It is simply for your information, and there are no implications for our students here at OSCA. In fact, it’s business as usual!

We are confident that we have an excellent curriculum offer at OSCA, with lots of breadth and depth, and of course our students already benefit from starting their GCSE courses at the start of year 9, so they have a head start as we move into year 10.

Hope that clarifies any uncertainty, and please do get in touch with us if you have any further queries. Best wishes,

Marie McMahon
