Options (Year 9 into 10)
As students prepare to leave Year 9, they make the first of a series of important choices about which qualifications they wish to gain throughout the next two years. The booklet below help guide students towards making the best choices for their future.
The range of qualifications and subjects available to students during Years 10 and 11 is comprehensive. It provides students with the opportunity to follow a broad academic curriculum while at the same time having the ability to follow interests and career specific routes. Throughout the Key Stage, we expect all students to complete work to the highest possible standard so that they leave Year 11 ready to commence Post-16 studies with a wide variety of options open to them.
Please find below the options booklet containing further guidance on the process and each offered subject. In addition there are a list of FAQs and short course introduction videos to help you make an informed decision.
