Year 9 Options
Year 9 students have some important decisions to make about their futures. In September 2024 you move from Key Stage 3 onto the 14 to 19 Curriculum. They will be beginning a course of study that will take them up to their public examinations in Year 11. However, we see this as part of your longer journey towards Post 16 courses in the Sixth Form and on to Higher Education. The options process is to ensure you have the information to make good decisions for your future. The Options Booklet has been distributed to students but the online version is also available here:
It is crucial that each student chooses their courses very carefully in order to maintain progression over the next four years, and also to prepare for Higher Education and for the world of work.
Though they will continue with a range of familiar subjects, a number of subjects will be completely new to them. The Key Stage 4 Curriculum offers some vocational courses (courses related to the workplace) as well as new academic subjects. Students should discuss your potenial areas of study with their parents, tutor, Head of Year and your subject teachers.
The deadline to submit options is 9th February 2024.
