Making your Key Stage 4 option choices is an important time for all Year 9 students. Please take the time with your parents/carers to review the information below to ensure you make informed choices.
On this page you will find resources to support your child in making their option choices for Key Stage 4, making option choices is an important time for all Year 9 students and we want to provide all students with the information they need to make informed choices.
All students will be informed about their curriculum pathway allocations during the week beginning Monday 18th January. Please watch the Introducing Year 9 Options video to find out more about what the different curriculum pathways mean.
I would appreciate Parents/Carers and Year 9 students taking the time to discuss option choices and I would also encourage you to review the resources on this page including reading the Options Booklet.
In addition, every subject has produced a video which provides further information about each course on offer. You can watch these videos below.
I hope you will find the Options Booklet and additional web based resources useful and that you feel supported in making these very important decisions. However, I understand that you may have questions. If this is the case, please feel free to complete this short form.
Please remember we have the virtual Parents’ Evening on Thursday 4th February. This is a great opportunity to ask lots of questions of the teachers in subjects your son/daughter is considering studying in Years 10 & 11.
On Monday 25th January 2021 we will contact families again to issue them with the Options form. At this point, we will provide further details about how to complete the form correctly. It is important that Options form is completed promptly as this information allows us to ensure timetabling and staffing requirements are met. The deadline for completing the Options form is Monday 1st March.
