Welcome to the Year 9 Curriculum Re-selections Page
In this section, you will find a range of information regarding the Year 9 re-selection process.
We aim to support all students in making fully informed and aspirational options selections in Year 8 and Year 9. We expect all students to study a broad and balanced curriculum which enables them to progress onto post 16 studies and beyond.
Our KS4 curriculum is divided into compulsory core subjects and a choice of options subjects. Most students will study 5 option subjects in Year 9, which decreases to 4 option subjects in Year 10.
It is important for students to consider carefully which subjects they wish to continue to study in Year 10. Please note the below.
Dates for the re-selection process during the 2023 - 2024 academic year will be uploaded here as soon as they become available.
- Students can only continue to study subjects they have started in Year 9
- We cannot guarantee that the subjects student re-select, will be possible; although we will do out very best.
- Students must continue to study at least 1 EBAC options subject (Language, History, Geography or Computer Science)
- We cannot guarantee that your current class group or teacher from year 9 options groups, is continued into Year 10.
To support students through their subject re-selections, we will follow the below process.
Please note, the dates and arrangement below are subject to change.
