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
  • 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.

In January 2018 we changed our Options offer for Year 9 students. Consultation was undertaken with parents/carers of students in Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 and the final outcome reflects some of the issues raised.

 


New Curriculum Offer for students starting Year 9 from 2018 onwards

Find out about our Key Stage 4 curriculum for students in Year 10 and Year11 here.

Every Year 9 student will be issued with an Options Booklet which outlines the pathways available and gives detailed information on the KS4 courses. Option Forms will be issued for each of the main pathways (Traditional and Open) which need to be returned to tutors by the deadline.

OUR COMMITTMENT

We seek to ensure that, as far as possible, every student is able to embark on the courses for which they have expressed a preference.  In a few cases, it may be impossible to timetable some combinations of subjects.  It will be necessary in some subjects to offer further guidance to particular students as to the appropriateness of their preferences.
