Year 9 Options

Year 9 students are now in the process of deciding their GCSE options.

This began earlier than in previous years to tie in with the virtual Progress Review evening and to enable students to make really well-informed and considered choices.

It is important therefore, that students consider their options very carefully. We have produced a short video for parents on the options process which can be found in the Curriculum section of the website.  Please click on this link:

Students were given an introduction to the process during a Tutorial session in December, where they were issued with both an Options Booklet and an Option Choices Form. A copy of the Options Booklet is also available in the Curriculum section of our website. A digital version of the Options Form can be completed here.

We have also asked Options subjects to prepare short videos and power points which give more information around the specific GCSE courses. These will appear in the Curriculum section in the run-up to the Progress Review Evening.  Please click on this link:

Key dates:

  • Tuesday 15th December 2020 - Virtual Progress Review and Options Evening
  • Friday 5th February 2021 - Options Form submission deadline.
