Key Stage 4 Options

All of the information on this page relates to students currently in Year 8 (in the 2017-2018 academic year) and who will begin their GCSE/BTEC Key Stage 4 courses in September 2018 when they start Year 9.

At the bottom of this page you will find a link to the Key Stage 4 Options booklets for Year 8.

Within the booklet you will find:

Each student has his/her own hard copy of the booklet which is currently being used in tutor times to support students in discussing, navigating and using the booklet. They will then bring the booklet home for further reading and reflection. The content of the booklet on the website is exactly the same as the hard copy students are using at school.

Options assemblies began in January and work supporting students’ understanding of the Key Stage 4 curriculum continues in assemblies, tutor time and subject lessons up until March 27 when the options forms must be submitted. The Key Dates section in the booklet gives more information about the process, including the support available, which includes the Options Information Evening on Thursday 08 March from 16:30-18:30, starting with a talk in the school hall at 16:30.

Students always enjoy the options process and it is a really good time for all to reflect on their transition to Key Stage 4 and the opportunities that offers.

We hope that you will find the booklet useful and we look forward to seeing you at the Options Information Evening. Please contact your child’s tutor or Year Leader should you wish to know more.
