Year 9 Options

2023 Options Guidance - Year 9

Tuesday 21st March 2023 - Options Information Evening

This is a revised date in reflection of the planned industrial action - previously Thursday 16th.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

You should have received a letter of invite, 22nd February, inviting you to both the Year 9 Parents' Evening and the Year GCSE Options Evening.

Please note that these are two separate events with different purpose:


Year 9 Parents' Evening - Thursday 9th March

This is a remote event to discuss your child's progress at Key Stage 3 with their subject teachers.


Year 9 GCSE Options Evening - Tuesday 21st March

This is a LIVE information gathering evening, through presentation and discussion with faculty staff, to inform preferred choices to study at GCSE over the next two years.


All information will be shared on this evening and made available online thereafter. The evening itself is a great opportunity to build an understanding of the curriculum option process for Year 9s but also to meet the subject teachers for a better understanding of what their curriculum offers.


The following documents will be available on the evening...

In this booklet you will find all the necessary information about the options selection process.

This is the form with which students will submit their subject preferences. It outlines the subjects available, as well as any requirements or limitations you will need to consider when selecting your subjects.

This map outlines the venues used for the evening, which form a circuit around the school for ease of access.
