KS4 Options

Decision time!

This site will help you in making decisions about the next steps on your educational journey. You have been building your knowledge and experience in a broad range of subjects over the last few years. Now it's time to decide which subjects you feel you can shine in, and also the ones you need on your CV to get where you want to be in the future.

Now is the time for you to tailor your timetable to meet your future career aspirations. It's time to make some decisions!

Use the subject videos and help sheets on this site to help you decide which subjects are right for you. There are also contact email addresses for the subject leads if you have any questions.

The online portal to choose your options will open on Monday 7th February and you have until Friday 25th February to choose. You have support in your 'Life' lesson to help you reflect on the right choices for you, and on Thursday 10th February there is an Option Subjects Parents Evening to give parents and students the opportunity to discuss subject choices you are unsure about.

It's important to remember it is not first come first served for choices. We aim to give as many students as we can their first choices, and we look at how you have demonstrated your ability in the last few years when we need to make any adjustments. Whatever happens, we'll be in touch if we need to make any changes.

Make the most of the time you have now to talk through your ideas with as many people as possible, including your parents, relatives, teachers and others you trust for advice. I look forward to hearing your final decision.
