Options Process

Options Subject Information Booklet 2020

In Years 7 and 8, your child has accessed a wide range of subjects, and undoubtedly will have made decisions about which subjects they enjoy and where they experience success. They also will be beginning to think about what they may like to do in the future and what interests them. Your son/ daughter should use these experiences, as well as conversations with yourself and the teaching staff at the Academy to make choices for study during Year 9.
