Year 9



Year 9 return to complete their final year of Key Stage 3, a year in which they will be challenged and supported to make their option choices for GSCE. We have high expectation of this year group and know they will continue to work hard with commitment and dedication. The experienced tutor team will ensure that they receive the information, advice and guidance to make informed choices which will help them pursue their ambitions.

This programme is also supported through 3 Discovery Days – Click here to find out more.


Pupil Voice

Pupil Voice is very important at Chilwell School. It is an opportunity for pupils to give their views and opinions regarding school life. In recent years feedback from Pupil Voice has helped design our new school uniform, change the menu in the canteen and expand the offer in Activities Week.


Each Tutor Group in Year 9 will elect 2 representatives who will attend Year Council Meeting with the Year Leader, these pupils will be responsible for expressing the views of the pupils in their Tutor Group and giving feedback following the meeting.
