Year 9 Options 

Welcome to our options webpage. We hope you will find all the information you require to help you make the right choices for the subjects you will continue to study.

All pupils will follow courses in English, Maths, Science, Physical Education, PSHE and Citizenship (delivered through thirteen ‘Focus Days’), Philosophy and Ethics (delivered through five ‘Focus Days’) and work experience (delivered through one ‘Focus Week’).

The curriculum in Years 9 (from semester 2), 10 and 11 follows one to two pathways. Pupils will be advised as to which pathway they follow depending on their needs and aspirations.

 

  • Pathway 1 (Ebacc):  Pupils who follow this pathway will study the core subjects of English (Language and Literature), Mathematics (including Further Maths an enrichment where appropriate), at least a Double GCSE Combined Science, a Humanities subject (Geography or History), a Language (German or Spanish), plus a choice of two additional subjects.

  • Pathway 2:  Pupils who follow this pathway will study the core subjects of English (Language and Literature), Mathematics (including Statistics to broaden the curriculum where appropriate), at least a Double GCSE Combined Science, one subject from the EBacc core (Triple Science, German, Spanish, Geography or History) plus a choice of three additional subjects.
