Guided Choices

Introduction from the Principal to Guided Choices

Welcome to the Oasis Academy Don Valley guided choices process. We guarantee that we will do whatever it takes to make sure that every student that joins our Academy achieves his or her full potential.  We have extremely high expectations and, just as there are no shortcuts, there are no excuses.

There are important decisions to be made by you and your parents this year. The next two and a half years are a very important part of your education and the time from starting your GCSEs to results day will pass quickly. The guided choices process which you are about to undertake is designed to help you make the right choices for you and to achieve the best possible results in all of your subjects by the end of Year 11. 

As you go through the guided choices process there are many people you can ask to help you with this, including your parents, teachers and pastoral manager. By making the right decisions now, it will ensure that you study the right subjects and achieve the best results you can. Your success in Year 11 will pave the way for the next steps in your education at the age of 16. We hope that you will leave the Academy feeling proud of your achievements and move on to the courses, training and careers that will enable you to realise your dreams, whatever they may be. I can assure you that all the staff are looking forward to working with you to help you achieve your potential.
