Year 8 Options

Year 8 Options - 2019-22

Welcome to the Year 8 options process.

For the first time, your child has the opportunity to influence the curriculum they will study and as such will have to make some important decisions about their education over the coming months. We will support you and your child through every step of the process so that they make an informed choice and are happy about the subjects they will ultimately take to examination.

Our Options Booklet which will be available here soon, contains a wealth of information about the options process as well as an informative course guide for each subject, so please do read it carefully.  

KEY DATES
