Year 8 Options Information

On this page you will find the following supporting materials and documentation:

  • Y8 Options Booklet (PDF) 
  • Y8 Options Form (Word)
  • Options Presentation (Powerpoint)
  • Videos relating to all options subjects

Please read and view these in detail, even if your child believes that they already have a clear idea about their preferred choices. For the majority of students, choosing options will be a relatively straightforward process.  However, if you require further advice and/or guidance, please contact your head of year and a call can be arranged to assist you.

Paper copies of both the options booklet and options form will be given to your child on their return to school.

The Options Form (a copy of which you will find at the bottom of this page) needs to be returned as a hard copy to your child’s form tutor by Friday 26th March.

Booking Open for Virtual Year 10 Parents Evening
All parents' evenings will be conducted remotely for the rest of this academic year. The system will allow meetings to be conducted via video link, replacing the face-to-face set-up. Booking will shortly open for the virtual Y10 parents' meeting on Tuesday 23rd February. This will allow you to discuss engagement and progress thus far during the current remote learning period. Please make a single 5-minute appointment. For the majority of parents this will be with your child's Y10 tutor. In a small number of cases, there will be an opportunity to make an appointment with the Head of Y10. If this option is available, choose the head of year appointment instead of the tutor. Bookings will be open from 12 noon Wednesday 10th February. The booking system will close at 5pm Thursday 18th February. Bookings must be made through our central SchoolCloud portal by following this link Assistance with the process of making the appointment can be found in the 'Parent Guide' accessible by clicking this link. Further help with the process of connecting via videocall can be found by clicking this link. During the evening, the appointment times cannot be changed so it is essential that you are ready to log-in a few minutes before the allocated time. The system is configured for use on mobile devices though a laptop/tablet/desktop set-up will likely provide clearer communication.
