Options: GCSEs and equivalents

how do Year 9 students choose their options?

Year 9 students should follow this process for choosing their options to study from September 2021:

  • All Year 9 students have been sent an email to their school email account from Mr Griffiths, Deputy Headteacher, which outlines the process.
  • There are three pathways: blue, pink and yellow. The email from Mr Griffiths tells you which pathway you are on.
  • Read the Options Booklet for your pathway, which was included in the email from Mr Griffiths.
  • Watch the videos below about the options process and individual subjects.
  • Discuss your options with your family.
  • You will be sent details about when you will have an interview with a member of the Options Team. You can use this opportunity to ask any questions you may haven.
  • Once you have had your interview, you can fill in the Online Options Form - the link to this was in the email from Mr Griffiths.
  • The Online Options Form goes live on Thursday 28 January and must be submitted by Friday 26 February 2021. It can only be accessed during these times.
  • Please note that you can only complete the form when you are logged in to your school email.
  • If you have any problems with your form please contact Miss J Robinson (Head of Year) or Mrs K Kubon (Pastoral Manager).
