Year 9 Options

Year 9 Options

Welcome to the Year 9 Options process.

For the first time, your child has the opportunity to influence the curriculum they will study and as such will have to make some important decisions about their education over the coming weeks. As an Academy, we will endeavour to provide an options experience that will support you and your child through every step of the process so that they make an informed choice and are happy about the subjects they will ultimately take to examination.

Our Options Booklet contains a wealth of information about the options process as well as an informative course guide for each subject, so please do read it carefully.  

Use this link here to access the information shared with families at the Options information evening. It will provide key information and guidance to explain and support the completion of the options process for 2023.
