Options 2021

Hello Year 9

The Year 9 Options process is launched today for the first time in this virtual format as a result of the current pandemic. It is important that every pupil in Year 9 thinks carefully about the options they choose now and will study in Year 10 and Year 11.
In order for pupils and their parents/guardians to be fully informed there is firstly a presentation to be watched where the options process and deadlines are outlined. Also available to help pupils make the right decision about their options is a comprehensive Options Booklet that should be read carefully as it describes the option subjects available in detail. Departments have also recorded videos to provide further information about their respective option subjects. If having watched and read the resources just outlined you have any questions about the process or option subjects please contact the appropriate school staff by e-mail. Finally, the Initial Options form will need to be opened by clicking on the link on the website, completed and returned electronically to school by the Initial Options deadline of the 24th February 2021.
