Year 9 Options

Welcome to the Year 9 options page

Each year our Year 9s decide the optional subjects they would like to take in Year 10 and 11 which include GCSE's, Cambridge Nationals and BTEC qualifications.

Some subjects such as Maths, Science and English remain compulsory for all students, however this is a great opportunity for students to consider their interests and start steering their subjects towards them. 

Below you will find a range of information to help you make the right choices. 

Normally we would hold an Options evening at the school for parents and students. However, due to COVID-19 we have taken the information we would normally deliver on the options evening and made it available online on this page.

If after accessing this information you still feel like you need to discuss things further before making a choice you can speak to subject teachers, tutors and your year head to gain further guidance.
