Key Stage 4 Options

In Year 8 our students make their Key Stage 4 choices.  This process commences with Year 8 students sitting subject assessments in order to help inform their choices.  This is followed by a period of immersion in careers guidance, pathways and progression routes, GCSE and vocational qualifications subject specific information and a number of opportunities for some personalised guidance.

Once students have selected their Key Stage 4 courses they will experience a foundation in those courses in Year 9 before embarking on the full Key Stage 4 qualification in Years 10 and 11.

Student choices will be finalised during the Year 8 Options' Evening on Tuesday 12th February 2019.  We will then look at accommodating as many first choices as possible and feedback to students in the summer term in preparation for the Year 9 Foundation year.

We hope that the information in the Course Choices and Curriculum booklet below will help you in supporting your child through this process, if you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch with your child's tutor.

The booklet available to download below will outline your choices for you and your teachers and tutor will support and guide you through the process.
