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.
From 16 August, children under of the age of 18 will no longer have to self-isolate if they are contacted by NHS Test & Trace as a close contact of a positive Covid-19 case. Instead, they will be advised to take a PCR test. Please report any confirmed Covid-19 positive test results to our dedicated Covid Alert email address below: email@example.com
Please find below important information about the Year 11 and 13 results day arrangements and details for the start of the new term in September. On their return to school in September, all students will be given the opportunity to take two Lateral Flow Tests on school site. It is clearly in the interests of the school and its community that as many students as possible take up this opportunity to be tested on their return to school. As the students will be taking the new Orient Gene LFD test, we need to ask all families to provide consent for the testing, which can be done via the link below.
