We are very excited to launch our Year 9 Options process for 2021.  In ‘normal’ times, we would be inviting you to join us for a Year 9 Options Evening to give you the opportunity to find out more about the process and to speak with our staff about the courses on offer.  As has been the case often this year, we have had to look at an alternative method of communicating this information with you.  Below you will find our Year 9 Learning Pathways Options Booklet.  This not only contains written information about the process, different courses and next steps for you, but it also contains a number of links to videos from our Heads of Department and Heads of Subject which provide more information.  Please watch these videos to support the decisions that you make.

You will also find a link within the booklet to a Microsoft Form which needs to be completed by Friday 12th February which is a straw poll form to enable us to place subjects into option blocks bespoke for the 2021 Year 9 cohort.  This form will need to be completed via your child’s school Microsoft 365 (email) account. The link to this form is also here:


Please watch this 14 minute video> (link also in the booklet) before perusing the options booklet, as it provides important information about how to make your choices.
