Year 9 Options

Welcome to our Year 9 Options support page.

Year 9 have come to an important point in their education as they now must make their choices about which subjects to study during their final two years of High School in Key Stage 4.

Given the current situation our options process is different this year. Due to this we have created lots of materials below to support you and your child through the decision making process. Please watch the main presentation by Mr Holt which explains the process and read the options booklet thoroughly. We have created a series of videos from the subject leaders which explain the content and assessments of each course. Please look at those you are interested in prior to the Parents Evening on the 4th February. You will also find lots of detail about each subject in the Options Booklet.
