Year 8 Options Choices

The time for your son / daughter to select their GCSE options is soon approaching.  It is mportant that you receive all the necessary information well in advance of these choices being made.  As you know, Year 8 students have now completed the Options trawl, which we have used to shape our planning for this year group.

Hopefully, our Options Evening held on Tuesday 6th March , 6 – 7.00 pm has provided you with a  detailed insight into the options available and the curriculum structure for the next few years.  By now you’ll also have had a chance to speak with your son’s / daughter’s teachers, so will have a deeper understanding on how they are doing across all of their current subjects. 

When selecting their Options, we encourage students to focus on their interests, as well as those subjects that they have done particularly well in to date. Mrs Sullivan (Transition Manager) and Mr Jeremiah (Year 8 Progress Leader) are leading the Options process and will be the direct contacts for any queries relating to the transition. You may contact them by email or by phoning the main office on 01873 813500.
