Year 8 Options

Dear Year 8 Pupil 

You will very soon be coming to the end of your time in Year 8 and entering Year 9, when you will start your Key Stage 4 examination courses. Download and read the option booklet when it is available in the Spring Term to get an idea of the courses on offer next year. It is important that you make the right choice by taking the following steps:

  • Talk to your teachers about your progress in each subject.
  • Read the information in this booklet carefully. If there is anything you do not understand, ask your form tutor or another member of staff.
  • Speak to pupils in Year 9 who are following the courses you are thinking about. How do they find the work?
  • Make an appointment to speak to the Careers Officer in school.
  • Do not choose a subject just to be with a friend. You might be placed in different groups!
  • Make sure you are fully aware of the course requirements before making your choices. Staff will discuss any inappropriate choices and may advise you to change.

Once you have made your final choice, remember to give your Option Form to your Year Tutor by the deadline date given on the form.

Mr M Sexton

Deputy Headteacher
