In February students in Year 8 select options to start in September when they are in Year 9. They have to study Mathematics, English, Science, ICT, PE, PSHCE and RE and in addition are able to select a further 6 subjects. This ensures they maintain a broad and balanced curriculum to build the necessary skills for GCSE’s.
Year 9 students select four subjects to study at GCSE or BTEC in Year 10 and Year 11. This also takes place in February. Students will all continue to study Mathematics, English, Science, PE, PSHCE and RE.
Parents are fully involved in the process and are invited to an Options Evening hosted by the school. All students receive individual, personalised advice and guidance.
