Year 9 Options
It is very important that students read the options booklet carefully, discuss it with family, friends, teachers and research the courses that will suit your interests and style of learning. Students should think about their interests, strengths, weaknesses and any ideas they may have about a future career. All students follow a common curriculum of compulsory examined subjects. The common curriculum consists of GCSEs in English, English Literature, Mathematics, Science and Religious Studies. Physical Education also forms part of the core curriculum and some of you may choose to take a GCSE or Cambridge National Level 2 course in this.
You will then have the choice of a further four traditional GCSE subjects, or a combination of traditional GCSEs and other technical/vocational qualifications. Your curriculum will depend on your interests, learning style and ability. This prospectus contains a full list and description of each available option course and guidance on making your choice.
Options Deadline: FRIDAY 14th FEBRUARY
It is vital that you get the best possible advice and guidance when completing your option planning sheet. Once you have completed your sheet discuss your choices with your tutor . Please note that we may not be able to offer all the subjects listed if there is insufficient demand.
To select options students will be using an online options package. This will be introduced to students and parents through meetings and tutor times. You will be invited via a link, using a student school email address.
