YEAR 9 OPTION CHOICES
This term will be an important time for your child as they begin to make their Option Choices for Key Stage 4. There will be a range of information, advice and guidance available within school to help them make informed choices. These options choices are vital to enable them to make the academic progress in school that they are capable of so as to set them up for their “next steps” at the end of Key Stage 4 and beyond.
Our students will need to consider the options available and decide what they will enjoy studying. These subjects are in addition to the compulsory subjects of: English, Mathematics, Science, Physical Education, Religious Studies and Personal Development (formerly PSHCE).
We are just in the process of finalising the subjects on offer and further communication will come to you once this is in place.
Below is the timeline of events which make up the options process:
|Average Positive Praise Points||Average Negative Praise Points|
Careers Fair – students will have the opportunity to speak to a range of employers about their potential career goals and aspirations. Students will have an assembly to prep for the fair so that they get the most out of the experience.
Options assembly where the full process will be discussed with the students.
On this date we will also launch the Options Homepage on the website. The homepage will include the options booklet with all the relevant information regarding the subjects. In addition to this there will be videos from subject areas for parents and students to watch at a time that suits you.
Ongoing throughout March
