The Y9 options process is a major milestone in a student’s academic life. It is the first time that they can directly influence the subjects that they will study.

There is, necessarily, much information for students and parents to read, listen to, interpret and understand, but taking the time to do this will result in appropriate choices being made, which in turn will encourage success.

The class of 2023 is the year group that begins Y10 in September 2021 and complete their GCSEs in the Summer of 2023.
