On this page you will see a presentation from the headteacher about how the process works, as well as a careers video to help students consider which options might suit different careers, also the options subject teachers have created a video about their subjects. We have also produced an options booklet with further information in.
We will be holding our Options Evening on the 31 January 2023 where there will a presentation by the headteacher and also a chance to speak to the subject teachers. If you do not want or cannot make this evening please look through the information and watch the videos so that you can make your choices. This is the start of the process so we know what subjects you would like to take. It helps us to plan for the final options blocks based on student choices. The process will be completed by Friday 31 March 2023.
This is an important decision for your child so please talk to them and us if you need to get more guidance and support on what might be best. We make sure that all students do the GCSEs they will need for most post GCSE courses and employment, eg Maths, English, Science, Geography or History. Their option subjects should be ones they have enjoyed doing in KS3, new subjects they have tried out in Year 9 or brand new subjects they are interested in studying. If they do this, it will mean they are likely to work harder to get a good grade in them.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school for any additional support or guidance and you can also contact the subject leaders if you would like more information.
