Making Choices in Year 9

Learning that is right for YOU!

“We want to send every young person into the world able and qualified to play their full part in it.”

What’s on Offer?

We offer a range of academic and vocational courses to suit the learning needs and future career ambitions of all our students. 

To help you gain a clearer understanding of the curriculum choices available for Years 10 and 11, please have a good look through the range of subjects in the Options booklet by clicking on the red button below (this will be updated for 2021-2022).

In January 2021, Year 9 will be offered a series of subject Taster Sessions (week to be confirmed).

Following the Taster Sessions, students will have time to select their choice of Options subjects. We will keep both parents and students informed every step of the way.

Options Evening, Thursday 10 February, 3.15pm to 6.15pm

The choices of Options subjects that students have made will be discussed at our Year 9 Options’ Evening to provide the opportunity to ask any further questions before submitting final choices for approval. An invite to the Options Evening will be sent by letter. Booking will be made through the online Parents’ Evening System (no login details necessary).
