Year 9 into Year 10 Option Choices 2021

Year 9 students, parents and carers are warmly invited to our Y9 Parents’ and Options Evening on Thursday 31 March 2022 – more information can be found here.

All students will continue to study English Language, English Literature, Maths and Science.  All students will study GCSE French and will choose either GCSE Geography or GCSE History – French, Geography and History are two year GCSEs.

Due to the increased number of exams students sit at the end of Year 11, we now offer a one year GCSE for two of the students’ options.  This means your child will study and sit one GCSE in Year 10 and then choose another GCSE option in Year 11 to study and sit.
