Options Choices

In Year 9 all students pick their GCSE level subjects that they will study at Key Stage 4 (Year 10 and 11). We offer a wide array of both academic and vocational qualifications for students. Students are guided carefully through the options process with input from their subject teachers, curriculum leaders, pastoral team and our careers advisor. Parents are invited to an options evening and encouraged to offer as much support as possible to their children regarding the Key Stage 4 journey.

Our detailed booklet has all of the information needed to select GCSE or vocational qualifications and answers to a list of Frequently Asked Questions.

If you require any further information, please contact Mr Keelan.


Optional subjects to choose from for 2024 are:

  • Triple Science
  • Geography
  • History
  • French
  • Spanish
  • Art & Design
  • 3D Design
  • Business Enterprise
  • Business Studies
  • Design Technology
  • Drama
  • Health & Social Care
