Year 9 Options

Stage One

The first stage of the Options process commenced on Monday 25th January and is now complete. All Year 9 students should by now have indicated their initial subject choices for the next two years. This information has been used to form the Final Options Grid. 

If you wish to revisit the information provided in Stage One, including the Options Booklets, please follow this link:

Stage Two

The next stage of the Options process is where students make their final decisions about the subjects they wish to study at GCSE and BTEC.

There are three steps to follow:

1. View the presentation from Mr Wood, Deputy Headteacher, for an overview of this stage, a look at the Final Options Grid and some guidance about selecting a reserve subject.

2. Watch the short presentations from the subject teachers for further information about the GCSE or BTEC subjects you are considering, to make sure they are the right choices for you.

3. Make a note of your final choices and enter these on the Final Options Form (the link for this is at the bottom of this page). The deadline for submitting the form is Friday 26th February.

For students taking the alternative curriculum (A Band) route, you will be advised separately by Mrs Lanczak-Faulds and therefore are not required to submit the Final Options Form.
