Information on 2023 Options process

Dear Year 9 students, parents and carers,

The timetable for the options process is:

  • During December and January there will be opportunities for students to watch videos from our website explaining how different options subjects work. There will also be a detailed booklet explaining how the process works and course content for individual subjects.
  • Students will also have some time in PS lessons and form time to discuss options.
  • There will be an options booklet with all course information uploaded to the website.

Week beginning 23 January 2023 – the options process launch via video presentation shown during form time/ assembly to year 9. Options online opens for students to make their choices. More details on this to follow as we are using a new system this year.

26 January: Options Evening – presentations at school explaining the options process and how years 10 &11 work. There is also an opportunity to speak to subject leaders, colleges and career advisors.

22 February: deadline for options – at this point the numbers gathered will inform the classes we run for year 10 next year.

Up until Easter, Mr Davies will speak to students whose choices may not be running or for whom there are clashes. After Easter it may be possible to change but this will be dependent on class numbers.

You will find out which Options you have by Easter.
