Year 8 Options for September 2023 start

Please click here to read the introductory letter outlining the options process for pupils currently in year 8, who will make options choices this academic year to start GCSE courses in September 2023.

We offer two subject preferences to all pupils via two pathway routes:
Pathway one – Humanities: geography or history and no longer continue with a language.
Pathway two – Languages: pupils continue with the language they are currently learning.
They can also opt for geography or history as one their two choices to achieve the Ebacc qualification.

Both pathways allow all pupils to select two other subjects preferences from the range of courses offered.
