Choosing your options
In year 9, you will need to decide which subjects you would like to study in years 10 and 11, either as GCSEs or Level 2 (BTEC) courses.
Studying Maths and English is mandatory, as is Science – either as a dual or triple award.
It is anticipated that the majority of students will follow their foreign language option through to GCSE after choosing their preferred language in year 7.
You will also be asked to choose one of the humanities subjects (History or Geography) to complete your full set of EBacc options.
The EBacc subjects ensure that students have a broad and balanced curriculum, and are therefore at the heart of our GCSE curriculum. All students will also study Religious Studies and have two core PE lessons per week.
It is important to think carefully about your choices, as you will be studying them for the next two years and they could affect your options for A Levels or further education.
