Key Stage 3 - Year 9
“Reading is to the mind, as exercise is
to the body.”
Year 9 is a pivotal year for students at
MIS. As students embark on their last year in KS3, they also begin to make
decisions about their future. This is an exciting time because, for the first
time since starting primary school, students have the opportunity to choose
what they will study for their IGCSE. Choosing options requires careful thought and deliberation; these
choices will help pave the way for the career pathways that the students might
like to venture down when they eventually leave school.
Year 9 is a busy and important year in
our students’ journey. The focus this year is on making excellent academic
progress and becoming thoughtful, responsible citizens. Students are encouraged
to become independent learners and to develop the essential personal
organization routines that will allow them to meet coursework deadlines, and to
revise for their examinations.
It is a privilege to lead this year
group, and I am looking forward to a successful, enjoyable year.
Ms. S. Chereni,
Head of Year 9.
