On this page you will find resources to support your daughter in making her option choices for Key Stage 4, making option choices is an important time for all Year 9 students and we want to provide all students with the information they need to make informed choices.
All students will be contacted on Monday 11th January 2021 with updated arrangements for the Year 9 options process and information about band allocations for Year 10.
I would appreciate Parents/Carers and Year 9 students taking the time to discuss option choices and I would also encourage you to review the resources on this page including reading the Options Booklet. Every subject has produced a video which provides further information on each course on offer and current Year 10 and 11 students have been interviewed to offer student insight into what life is like studying these subjects. I hope you will find the Options Booklet and additional web based resources useful and that you feel fully supported in making these very important decisions.
During the next 2 weeks in Year 9 lessons teachers will be sharing details about their subject at Key Stage 4. Students will be able to find out about the way that the subjects are examined, how much controlled assessment is involved and the skills that will be taught. Please ask lots of questions as this will be invaluable in helping to choose the right options.
On Monday 25th January 20201 we will write to parents again to provide a personal link to enable you to make your daughter’s options choices via an online form. It is important that this is completed promptly as this information allows us to ensure timetabling and staffing requirements are met.
