The Options process (Yr9 into Yr10)

Choosing Options

In Key Stage 4 students study up to 10 GCSEs, depending on their ability. The varied options system allows for the study of three separate sciences, as well as two languages and a range of courses, including vocational options. We have produced lots of information to help parents/carers and students make decisions about their Options. On this page you will find:

Support from the Careers Service

Choosing GCSE Options in Year 9 can be a daunting experience for parents/carers and students. Should you require a careers advice and guidance appointment to talk over GCSE options with a careers advisor concerning potential career routes, you can contact the careers service via email, from February onwards, to arrange an appointment Wednesday—Friday.
