Options for GCSE and BTEC Courses

In Year 9, students select their GCSE and BTEC subject options for Year 10 and 11. We normally hold an Options Evening for students, parents and carers at the end of January (see our Key Dates). Following this, all the information on the subject options and the Option Request Form are available to download on the right and also on the Curriculum page of our website.

For 2021/22 Year 9 students, we held an online Options Evening on Wednesday 19th January. Prior to this we sent out the Options Booklet (see downloads on the right) by email, and also asked for Parents/Carers to complete an Expression of Interest form to indicate the subject teams with whom they required an appointment for more information. This was not the final Options selection, just a chance to find out more about the subject and the course. Final Options choices can now be made via the form in the Options Choices letter, accessed here or in the downloads to the right of the page.

The Job of the Week information put together by Mrs Sadat-Shafai, our Work Placement Coordinator, also gives a good indication of the qualifications required to pursue different careers. These can also be located in our Careers and Higher Education Guidance pages.

In addition to form tutors. Guidance Team Leaders and subject tutors are all available to discuss subject choices with students and Parents/Carers.
