Options at Year 8

Choosing your subjects

Year 8 students will be asked to choose optional subjects.  For many this is the first important decision they will make regarding their own future.

Students are well supported at this time and parents and family can help out by discussing student’s ideas and helping them to research in preparation.

Students will have the opportunity to try out ‘taster’ sessions in the run up to their options choices. We will also host parent information evenings and conduct a survey of preferred choices before looking at the construction of the blocks for timetabling.

This year’s options process will begin in January with pupils making final choices before Easter 2017.
