The choice of subjects to be studied to examination level at Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11) is a vital one which must be made in Year Nine.

The purpose of this section of the website is to provide students and parents with appropriate information to ensure that a carefully considered and informed decision is made. The subject statements provided here offer a broad outline of the examination courses to be followed at G.C.S.E. Subject content, structure and assessment procedures will be explained in greater detail at the GCSE Evening this October. All students in Year Nine are guided and supported throughout this period. After discussions and consultations with subject teachers, careers guidance teachers and parents, students should try to choose those subjects which are best suited to their particular aptitudes and abilities.

The option form should be completed and returned to Mrs. McLaughlin as soon as possible but not later than the date specified.

The choices made at this stage will not necessarily be the final ones but if parents are concerned about any aspect of their child’s option choices they are invited to telephone school and make an appointment to discuss the matter.
