Year 9 Options

The opportunity to make curriculum choices is a very important part of your educational journey. The options you choose will play a big part of your time in Year 10 and 11. In some cases, they may influence your post 16 choices. 

It is important to choose subjects that you are interested in, rather than those your friends have chosen. Spend some time with parents/carers thinking about what you enjoy and what motivates you.

This webpage provides you with all of the information you will need to make informed choices about your options, please look at the information carefully and submit any questions to us via the link in the options letter.

We look forward to working with all of our Year 9 students to support them in making their options choices.
