Year 9 is a milestone in your time at school ‐ the beginning of courses in a variety of subjects. Until now you have taken the same subjects but next year will be different. You will have the opportunity of studying a wider range of subjects and be able to choose, with help, which ones suit you best.
The process of how to choose your options begins in the Spring Term. You will be invited to take part in an Options Taster Day. Here you can start to learn about the courses on offer. Parents attend an open Evening in February and children return their choices by early March. All students have an individual meeting with a Senior Leader to discuss their choices. Finally the options are confirmed in writing with parents in the Summer Term. The process is organised by the Year 9 Progress Leader and parents should contact them for further information.
