How the process works
Our usual option process has been delayed this year due to the Covid Lockdown of early 2021, but is due to start up shortly after the Easter break.
From the week beginning 19/04/21, students, parents and carers of Year 9 pupils will be able to view a series of on-line subject presentations on the school website which should give a taste of what each of the subject choices involve. This will be followed up on the 13/05/21 by a virtual options/parents’ evening where there will be an opportunity for students and parents to discuss subject progress, and ask any questions about potential Key Stage 4 option choices for September 2021.
The final part of the options process will be interviews between senior pastoral staff and the students where the options choices will be discussed and forms filled in. These interviews will take place during the week beginning 17/05/21 and there will be an opportunity for parents to attend these meetings with their child should they wish. The final deadline for submission of option forms will be the 18/06/21.
