Collage of curriculum options subjects

 

Friday 5th March: 2021 Options booklet is published

Paper copies will be made available through each child’s form tutor for those who do not have Internet access. It contains information needed by students and parents/carers to help select courses that students will follow through Years 9, 10 and 11. Please take the time to look through the course information with your child/parent and begin discussions about possible option choices.

 

Thursday 11th March 2021: 6:15pm Options Evening

The Options Evening will consist of two parts:

  1. A live webinar starting at 6:15pm will outline the entire options process for families; key dates and deadlines.

  2. Pre-recorded films for each option course will be shared with families. They will provide more detailed explanations about how each course is structured and assessed.

 

Monday 15th March - Friday 26th March

Each student will be given a 1:1 interview with a member of senior staff to discuss options and help to support their decision making process.

Tuesday 30th March: Options Deadline

This is the final date for options forms to be submitted. We ask that parents ensure that they have discussed the options with their child before forms are submitted.

What happens next?

After the deadline we will begin the process of constructing the Options blocks and students will be informed as to whether or not their choices have been possible. There may be some choices which do not work out because a subject may not receive sufficient support or may be heavily oversubscribed. Similarly, students may have made a combination of choices which is considered to be too narrow or restrictive or possibly not suited to their needs, despite the advice given previously. If this is the case we will negotiate any changes which may be necessary with individual students. 

Choosing options is an important time and I do hope you will find our processes helpful. If you have any queries about the options process, please contact your relevant school base.
