Making your Key Stage 4 option choices is an important time for all Year 9 students. Please take the time with your parents/carers to review the information below to ensure you make informed choices.


On this page you will find information to support your child in making their option choices for Key Stage 4. Making option choices is an important time for all Year 9 students and we want to provide all students with the information they need to make informed choices.

All students will be issued with a printed options booklet and will be informed about their curriculum pathway allocations during the week beginning Monday 22nd January 2024. 

On Thursday 25th January, there will be a Year 9 Options Evening, in addition to the normal Year 9 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 8th February.  The Options Evening will take place between 5.30pm and 7.30pm on the Broadway Campus. At the Options Evening, families will be given more information about the options process as well details about individual subjects.

Completed option forms must be submitted by Monday 19th February. It is really important that students consider their choices carefully because these will not be changed in Year 10.
