KS4 Options

Welcome to our KS4 Options  

Selecting courses to study at KS4 is a very important step on the education journey for our students.  We want to support all our students to make the right decisions, so that they can be successful and enjoy their learning and ensure that they have access to their future pathways into further or higher education and ultimately, into employment. 

On this webpage we have compiled resources which will support you and your child so that all our Year 9 students can select the best options for their KS4 subjects. 

How to use this section 

To find out more about our Options Process please watch this presentation by Amanda Ayres, Vice Principal.  

To find out more about each of the different subjects offered at KS4, please watch the presentations by the subject leaders which can be found by selecting the subject choices on the left. Each subject also has additional information which is accessible from the side menu.

Making your choices 

Once students have decided on their options, they should either return the paper copy of their completed options form (enclosed in the pack posted home) or respond to the MS form which has been emailed to their school email account.

The deadline for completed options forms is Thursday 15th April.
