YEAR 9 OPTIONS INFORMATION 2023-25
Key Stage 4 2023-25 Information
In the spring term of Year 9, all pupils are informed about the choices that they can make for their KS4 courses. Each year, we review the courses that we offer based on the success of the courses in the previous year, evaluation of new courses that are available and their success in other local schools and the popularity of courses and the availability of specialist staff in school to deliver particular courses. This means that although some courses are offered every year, others may not be available to every cohort.
The information here outlines the courses on offer for the consideration of our current Year 9 students. Depending on the popularity of these courses some may be available to multiple groups of students and others may be oversubscribed if we can not accommodate multiple groups in a specialist area where there is only one subject specialist. Pupils and parents should read this information very carefully, following the advice included to select 4 subjects and reserve subjects.
