Year 8 Options – essential information

Planning your future

As you start Key Stage 4, you will be following a range of courses that will lead to external qualifications. Some will be GCSEs, others may be other qualifications which are the equivalent of a GCSE.

The opportunities open to you in the future will depend on what you achieve during these years. For example, to be able to follow many sixth form and college courses, you will have to gain several GCSE passes at grade 5 or higher. However, it is not just a matter of gaining qualifications – all achievements are important, from taking part in additional activities in school to demonstrating our school values such as aspiration, resilience and team-work.

We are here to help you make the best choices for your future.

The options process

Even though we are not all currently in school, we will endeavour to provide an options experience that will support you through every step of the process. We want you to make an informed choice and be happy about the subjects you will ultimately take to examination.

Our Options Booklet contains a wealth of information about the options process as well as an informative course guide for each subject, so please do read it carefully.

Please watch this video which will explain the subjects you must study, the subjects which are optional, the support available and lots of tips and advice.
