Year 8 Options Evening

As of September 2018, your son/daughter will begin to study the courses they wish to pursue until the end of Year 11, so they will be required to make their GCSE/Vocational option choices.

The course information flyers, which will soon be available on our website, contain very important information, about the curriculum your child will study. It lists the core subjects, and choices available within the optional element of the curriculum.

You and your child will have some idea of their strengths and weaknesses from reports, assessments and comments from subject staff. It is necessary, therefore, that this knowledge is applied to the choices that have to be made.

The process for students to choose the subjects that they wish to study is very important and listed below are the key dates and steps to this process:-
