Students choose their KS4 (GCSE) options during March of Year 9 and benefit from comprehensive guidance throughout the academic year.
We currently use two pathways for students in order to steer them towards their best options although we maintain a strong view that students must have a clear sense of choice and the opportunity to enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum.
These pathways guide many students towards the English Baccalaureate subjects (English / Maths / Science / MFL / Humanities), they encourage all students to take some vocational subjects to offer a different approach to learning and qualifications.
Additionally, these option routes are supplemented by an outstanding and quality-assured provision of career and aspiration guidance so that every child is well-informed as regards to their ambitions.
