KS4 Options for September 2022 start
By the end of Year 9 students have completed Key Stage Three. This is the period from Year 7 to Year 9 where students cover a breadth and depth of subjects.
On starting Year 10, students move into Key Stage Four where they narrow down their subject choices based on a core curriculum and their personal preferences for future study. This page is designed to help students and families with this decision-making process.
The content below will give our students all the information they need to make the options process as easy as possible.
We wish our Year 9 students all the best as they make their decisions and embark on this exciting next phase of education.
