Option Process

The GCSE Options Process

You will need to think very carefully about the choices that you would like to make at Key Stage 4 and it’s important that you appreciate the size of the commitment you are making.  As you may be aware, all young people are now required to continue in education or training until their eighteenth birthday. The subjects that you choose now will influence any potential A Level, college courses, and apprenticeships, and will form the foundation of your continuing education leading to university, training, or employment. 

To help with the options process all families are given access to an Options SharePoint Page.  This site includes lots of useful information about the subjects that we offer. 

Choosing your options can be dificult and we aim to support you through this process, we encourage students to talk to their subject teachers, tutor, older students and their Head of Year.
