Dear Parents/Carers


Year 9 KeyStage 4 – Options

Options Evening – Wednesday 27th April between 4.00pm to 6.30pm 


Our students are now entering an important chapter within their life at the academy.  They are about to make their option choices which will involve them selecting examination courses to follow from the next academic year in Key Stage 4. 


We are now excited to begin the KS4 options process with our year 9 students. All of the important information that you will need can be found in the interactive ‘Options Guide 2022’ on our academy website, Google Classroom and our Facebook page. It is essential that both you and your child find the time over the Easter break to explore our curriculum offer within the guide so that we can all help, advise and support them to make the right curriculum choices. 


Taster sessions of the options will be shared with your child during lessons from 21st April to 27th April.  It is extremely important for you and your child to attend the options evening on Wednesday 27th April between 4.00pm to 6.30pm, where you will have the opportunity to speak to the subject staff about each of the option choices. Please complete the attendance form link confirming your attendance.


The key dates that you should be aware of can be seen below, these can also be found within the options guide.
