year 8 optionS

Options time is an important point in your education, as it is here that you choose some of the subjects that you will study for the next three years. We know that it can be a difficult time and can cause anxiety because there are a lot of questions that you might have: Which subject is right for me? What if I don’t know what I want to do. Rest assured that we will help you to make choices about future learning that are right for you. Our Year 8 Options Evening will help pupils, parents and carers decide on which subjects best support future career aspirations but also identifying those subjects which pupils enjoy and feel positive about.
