Year 9 Options


We have now reached that time of year when we ask Year 9 students to consider which subjects they wish to study next year. Students are being given information on the subjects that will be available at KS4 via a google classroom. PSHCE lessons and assemblies will be used to share information and give opportunities for students to consider their future career routes and how to achieve their goals. In addition, information will be provided on this site relating to option choices and the process to be followed.

From Monday 14th March students will receive a leaflet outlining the options process and option blocks for subjects. An assembly will be held on 16th March to give further guidance. Options Evening is also on 16th March, running from 5pm-7pm in the Main Hall and 6th Form Hub. Please see the letter attached for further details.

The preference form will be sent out to parents electronically on 16th March. It will be a google form. We can provide paper copies if needed, but this has to be signed by you. The form must be completed by Friday 25th March.  After this date we will check all forms to ensure students have expressed a preference for courses that will enable them to succeed. In addition, we need to ensure that groups are economically viable and that we have sufficient staff to run courses.

If you have any questions please contact me or Mrs Harvey via email.
