Choosing your options

Many students will already have a clear idea of the subjects they want to study for GCSE, others less so. Either way, we are here to help and to guide students through the process. 

Our guide for students is below.

Step 1: Work your way through the options booklet (linked below)

Click here to read the Option booklet 2022

This will help you:

  • identify your strengths and preferences
  • understand the curriculum and assessment requirements for each subject
  • understand which combination of subjects is possible
  • whittle down your choices until you have the best combination for you
  • understand that we will do our very best to accommodate your first choices, but why very occasionally we have to ask students to accept a back-up choice

You can also take a look at the subject pages here on the website (accessed from the "Curriculum" tab) and our Key Stage 4 presentations.

Step 2: Talk to your teachers if you have any questions or would like more information

We look forward to discussing your option choices with you and/or your parents. Please do get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, no matter how trivial they may seem.

Step 3: Complete the online form by Monday 23rd May. 

Student and parent/carer should complete the form together.
