Help to make informed choices
Students make their GCSE options choices during the early spring of Year 8. Every student is supported through this process and introduced carefully to subjects that are new at KS4 so they can make informed choices.
We combine the Year 8 Options Evening with Parents Evening so that parents can talk to their child’s teachers about appropriate choices as well as their progress in that subject during Year 8. Where there are new subjects on offer at KS4, staff are present to consult with parents about the courses on offer in detail. To meet the needs of all learners, we offer four routes through KS4; each designed around pathways into Post 16 education, employment or training
