Year 8 Options

Year 8 will be choosing the optional subjects that they will be studying in Key Stage Four in May. To provide all of the guidance that is required to allow students to make the correct option choice we have put together a package for students and parents to gain subject specific information.

Students will be viewing videos of former students who will explain to them the optional choices required for a variety of jobs in different employment sectors.

The options booklet and option forms are available below for parents and students to gain subject specific information.

Optional subjects will be running evening Team meetings where they will present subject specific information to parents and students. These will take place starting on Monday 19th of April through to Thursday 29th of April. Details of these presentations will be sent out after Easter.

As students in Year 8 have had their bubble on the ground floor many of them will not have experienced some subjects that are normally delivered in a specialist room. Also there will be many new subjects that students have not experienced. In order to provide additional information we will be running two days over Easter where students can experience new subjects and current subjects but in the specialised rooms they would normally be delivered in.

If you would like your son/daughter to attend these sessions please can you fill out and return the form below to their form teacher.
