VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Year 8 Options

Year 8 Options - 2021-24

Welcome to the Year 8 options process.

Despite these strange circumstances, 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 weeks. Even though we are not all currently in school, we will endeavour to provide an options experience that 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 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.  

You should also watch the information videos on the Essential Info page.

We also invite you to watch the subject videos, presented by our Subject or Curriculum Leaders.
