In February, all Year 9s receive their Options Forms to make their choices for their GCSE courses beginning in September.  Detailed information on each separate subject to help students make their choices can be found in the Options Booklet – please click on the link below:

Under normal circumstances, an Options Information Evening is held in February.  However, during the past 2 years, due to the lockdowns, it was not possible for this to take place, nor for parents and their children to attend school to speak to subject teachers face to face and visit the different departments.  This year we returned to a more normal way of working and it was great to see students and parents at the Options Evening. We do still have informative department videos giving details of their specific GCSE course content and how it is examined so do have a look! In addition, Headteacher, Julia Maunder, invites you to view her overview of the Options process, including important guidance on how to fill out the Options Form.
