Year 8 Options

Welcome to our Year 8 Options Page

The aim of this page is to provide students with all the information to enable them to choose the best possible Key Stage 4 subjects for them.

The Year 8 options process is an exciting time for students when they can begin to take control of their own learning and make decisions about their future. We hope you enjoy viewing our option subject videos on this page and find the information in the videos useful.

We believe that a broad and balaced curriculum should include both an EBACC subject and a Modern Foreign Language (MFL) subject for the majority of our students. Therefore, for most of our students, their Option B choice will be the MFL that they have studied since joining us in Year 7 with our talented linguists selecting to study 2 languages across options B and C.

Studying the full range of EBACC subjects at GCSE (English Language and English Literature, Maths, Science, History or Geography, A Language) will give students access to a range of employment options when they leave secondary school.

Students will be receiving an options form to complete following their options assembly. Should they have any questions or concerns, they should speak to Mrs Hague or Mrs Bibby in the first instance.
