Please note that this page is updated each Spring Term with the details of the Options process and KS4 courses to be offered to the current Year 9 cohort.
Key Stage 4 Options: 2021-2023
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be hosting an Options Evening in school this year. Instead, there will be a recorded presentation hosted on this webpage on Thursday 28th January which will explain the Options process, including the method of entering choices on line. There will also be recorded presentations from each of the Option Subjects available.
Parents and students may find it helpful to familiarise themselves with the Key Stage 4 curriculum in advance of the “virtual” Options Evening and the Year 9 Consultation Evening, which will take place on Tuesday 2nd February. Links to the exam specifications for each subject can be found below. Further details of the curriculum can be found here.
