Year 9 Key Stage 4 Options

The Year 9 Options process is an exciting time for our students as they are choosing the subjects they wish to study in greater depth for the next two years.  This is a big commitment and getting it right is key to future success. To help students make fully informed choices, since September (and continuing throughout the year) we have timetabled every student a block of lessons in each of the optional subjects we offer.  In making final decisions, it is important that students reflect on how much they enjoyed these lessons, how interesting they found the content and how studying this option may support their career plans.  Option subjects that tick each of these boxes should be a contender for your final choices!


In order to involve our Parents / Carers in the Options process, we are putting on a number of events:


  • On Thursday 7th January we are hosting a ‘virtual’ Options Evening. This will be the start of the formal options process. More details will be sent about the time this event starts.

  • On Thursday 4th February there is our Subject Parents’ Evening.  We anticipate that this will also be a ‘virtual’ event but will clarify details in the New Year.


Monday 8th February is the deadline for return of all completed Option forms.

Whilst we will always endeavour to give students the options they have chosen, please understand that on rare occasions this may not be possible e.g. if there are not enough students who have selected an option to make it a viable class, then I am afraid that this option may not run.


We are always at the end of a phone or email should you wish to talk anything through with us.


Best wishes and good luck,

Mathew Corrigan

CEO and Principal
