Information on 2022 Options process

Dear Year 9 students, parents and carers,

The timetable for the options process is:

  • During December, subject staff communicate with students via loom /video presentation or in person via current teaching sets. Teachers of subjects already studied in year 9, will often speak directly to their classes. New option subject teachers all give a presentation to all students – via a video or powerpoint.
  • Students will also have some time in PD lessons to discuss options.
  • There will be an options booklet with all course information uploaded to the website. 10January      Options process launch via video presentation shown during form time.  12 January      Options online opens for students to make their choices. (This can be revisited and changed up to the deadline date).  20 January       Subject consultation evening – online face to face discussions with current teachers.  27 January    Options Evening – likely to be virtual – a chance to ask any questions relating to options which have not been addressed elsewhere. 2 February     Sims options online closes at 4:00 pm – no more changes can be made.  Up until Easter Mr Davies will speak to students whose choices may not be running or for whom there are clashes. You will find out which Options you have by Easter.
