Curriculum and Option Choice for Year 9

Introduction
During the course of the next few weeks, pupils will be making subject choices that they will go on to be examined in at the end of Year 11 and we hope that the information provided on this page is useful. The information informs about the nature of qualifications, the basis upon which choices should be made, brief details about each subject and a section on career guidance. The information is for both pupils and parents.
Please read through the subject information and consider its contents carefully. After this period of reading, careful consideration and discussion between pupils, parents and staff, we should be able to arrive at the appropriate choice of subjects.
The Parents’ Subject Consultation Evening on Thursday 4th March should be seen as providing an opportunity to talk to relevant subject teachers to discuss and confirm decisions.
Option choices should be made on-line using Parent App and the deadline date for all decisions is Friday 12th March 2021. We ask for students to make four main choices in order of preference plus a reserve, in case we are unable to offer one of the main choices
