Choosing Your Options

In Year 9 students begin the process of choosing the subjects they would like to study in Year 10 and Year 11.

 We help students to make good choices in a number of ways:

  • Advice from their teachers
  • Presentations on new subjects
  • Carry out work with their tutors and receive careers advice.
  • Provide an ‘Options Booklet’ in January (at the Year 9 Parents’ Evening) that contains information about the KS4 courses available.

GCSE Pathway

Good preparation for A Levels and other college courses and assessed mainly through Controlled Assessment and Final Examination.

Vocational Pathway

This is a package of courses (that may include GCSEs and/or BTEC and NVQ). Students will also study an ICT-based qualification and take part in a series of work-related certified courses whilst at school. Suitable for Entry Level and Level 1 students. Students cannot choose this pathway directly, but will be invited to take part.

Both pathways include non-examined PE and a Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural, Citizenship and Religious Education programme.

Whilst we work hard to ensure that students can study their preferred courses at KS4, there are occasions when it is impossible to timetable some combinations of subjects. Sometimes teachers will need to offer further guidance to students to ensure they have chosen appropriately.

Key Stage 4 Options Booklet

Guidance on How to Complete your Options Form

Options Forms have been sent home in the post to all Year 9 students this week (w/c 31 Jan 2017). If you misplace your Options Form a replacement can be obtained from Student Services of the Head of Year.

Deadline for retuning Options Forms is Thur 9 February 2017. 

 


Note for Parents and Students

The majority of GCSE courses will be revised over the next two/three years and a new grading system will be introduced that grades GCSE from 1-9 (9 being the top grade).

The new Government threshold for success will be Grade 5. For more information abou the new grading structure click here.

Criteria set by the Government, which is likely to become the benchmark for FE and HE courses in the future, expects student to achieve good grades in:

  • GCSE Maths
  • GCSE English Language or GCSE English Literature
  • Plus three further GCSE qualifications from the Sciences (including Computer Science), Geography, History or a Language
  • Plus three further qualifications which can be either GCSE, BTEC or another approved qualification.
