    Writing a article about work experience for Year 9 students. Coursework
    When referring to Year 9s, should there be an apostrophe between the 9 and s?

    e.g.
    Year 9's!
    Year 9s!

    Which one is correct?

    but apostrophe if possession as in the Y9's library

    so if its saying...
    Year 9's! You are going to go on work experience.

    Like that?

    An apostrophe is used when something is possessive/belonging to, as in 'That is Penny's coat', or when there are missing letters as in 'That's Penny's coat'. In your case, there would be no apostrophe, as neither situation suits.

    No. If you are referring to more than one Y9 then it goes like one Y9, two Y9s, three Y9s and so on. So
    Y9s - pay attention to me.


    Y9s - you are going on work experience!
