Year 9 Options

All students have now had their options assembly and received their options booklet.

To support students and parents through the process we have dedicated this area of the school website to Year 9 Options. This area contains useful information and resources to help students and their parents make informed decisions about the options being selected.

Each subject area has filmed a short video about their subject and we hope this will assist you and your child in making their decision.
