Options

Introduction

We are about to commence the options process for year 8 where students will choose their suite of subjects to take forwards into KS4.

Due to current restrictions this will be a fully digital experience meaning that all information including course presentations will be available on the school website. In undertaking this process, we aim to create a focussed and challenging curriculum, that supports and maximises student progress into KS4 and post 16 transition.

Our Futures programme has run throughout the year and has included support sessions aimed at helping students to make informed options decision. This has been very successful in previous years and enables students to have more time to decide upon their chosen specialist subjects.

To help things run smoothly, we will be conducting the full options process digitally. The options window will open on the 1st February 2021 with students making their final decisions by the 15th March 2021. This process will require students to select preferences from a range of subjects from our KS4 curriculum.
