Options – Open Subjects

Open Option Subjects

Open subjects are all the other subjects available for students to choose from. Students have a freedom of choice to select subjects which they find interesting, engaging and have demonstrated an aptitude for over Key Stage 3. The range of subjects is very broad, however, the school retains the final decision over which courses run from September. If a subject has less than 15 students selecting it, it is unlikely this course will run. In this instance students’ preference choices will be applied.

(EBacc subjects also appear in the options subjects listed as students may wish to select two or more of these).
