Year 9 Literacy Programme

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Wright

The Year 9 Literacy Programme is aimed at students who need additional support with their literacy skills in reading and writing. The programme runs for three periods a week, and students in this class come out of their core classes to attend. No core subject is hit more than once over a fortnight period, to minimise disruption and loss of learning in other subject areas. Testing at the beginning of the year and information from feeder schools, assists us in selecting students that we feel will benefit from this additional support. 


This course is for identified and selected students only and is in addition to their normal Year 9 programme at Garin College.


An individual course will only run if sufficient students are accepted into the course.

All approvals for courses through this system are subject to satisfactory achievement in remaining internal standards and external examinations. Course Confirmation Day will run at the start of next year, where final approval for each course will be confirmed.
