Year 9 Options Choices for 2021
The end of Year 9 in Secondary Education marks a crucial stage in a student’s school life. All students will choose subjects and courses which lead to qualification by external examination.

Under this curriculum, there are a range of subjects which must be studied and most of these will be assessed through externally assessed examinations.

The options form (link below) must be completed by all year 9 pupils, and returned by Friday 11th December 2020 to their form tutors who will enter their choices into the system. We try to match all requests where possible.
