Year 9 Options Launch 2022
This year's process is shown in the chart below. All Year 9's are able to choose some of the subjects they will study over the following two years (Year 10 and 11). There is a wide range of academic GCSE and vocational courses to select from, including Fashion and Product Design; Computer Science; Health & Social Care; Fine Art; Music; Spanish; Sport; Drama, Engineering etc.
Students and parents will receive details on subjects within their Options Booklet, including a full explanation of how to make their choices, what they will study and how they are assessed. Please find these on Epraise. Each Booklet contains a range of Core Subjects, and Options, but your exact choices will depend on your study set.
