Year 9 Options Brochure

We are proud to offer our students a wide variety of different subjects and qualifications to choose from as an excellent foundation for their future aspirations.

Please take the time to go through the Year 9 Options Brochure where you will find information on the English Baccalaureate and Progress 8 as well as the subjects we offer.

There will be core subjects that everyone will study but you will also have a choice of optional subjects. It is important to choose subjects that you enjoy and are interested in so that you will be motivated to work hard.

Take advice from your subject teacher, tutor, careers advisor and think about the way the course and exams are structured. This process of researching, reflection and discussion is very important as we offer a range of subjects, including some that were not studied in Key Stage 3. It is therefore essential to take time to understand what each course offers and what is most suitable for each student as an individual.

As well as thinking about choosing the subjects that feel right for you, think about how these choices could help to prepare you for your next steps:

  • What grades will you need if you wish to study the subject further at Sixth Form?
  • What subjects would be useful for a university course or career aspiration?
