Year 9 Options

Choosing the right courses to study in Year 10 and Year 11 is an important milestone in your education. Although having the opportunity to create your own curriculum is exciting, it can also raise a number of difficult questions: Which subjects are right for me? Which careers complement my choices? What if I still don’t know what I want to do?

This webpage, the options booklet, the ASPIRE lessons and the virtual options evening on 25th March are designed to support you and your parents and carers. I hope that you will be able to make an informed decision about your learning and confidently choose subjects that suit your aspirations, skills and needs.
