Year 9 Options
This is a very exciting time in your life at the Academy as it is the first time that you will have had the opportunity to choose some of the subjects that you will study in the future.
There are some subjects that you will still have to study. These are English Language, English Literature, Maths, Science, PSHE and Practical P.E.
However, you can now ‘opt’ for 4 other subjects, alongside these. Some will be subjects that you have already experienced and some will be new .
Options this year will be done online. You will need to fill out the Google Form on which you will make your final choices.
Over the last few weeks you will have had virtual presentations from staff explaining the subjects that they offer, what they will expect from you if you choose their subject, what qualification you will gain and the possible courses and careers that this subject will be useful for in the future.
The booklet’s on the above link details the course content for each subject, how it is assessed, the awarding body, related careers, and additional information to help you make the right choices for you.
Please remember, this is your choice. Think about what you enjoy, what you are good at, what you will work hard at, and what you might want to do in the future.
On Monday 29th March you will be asked to submit a form online that contains your final choices. Remember, it is your future so think about your choices carefully.
