Year 9 Options 2023

We Value Diversity and Choice - Y9 Options to Choose GCSE Subjects

Over the course of their ViP lessons in January, Year 9 students will be finding out more about the options process for their GCSEs. They will also be having careers input in all of their lessons to help them make their choices.

During Term 3, Year 9 students should gather as much information as possible about the different options available and discuss their thoughts with parents and carers, tutors and subject teachers. Some students will also be given an interview by Mr Taylor - our Deputy Head; Mrs Whittaker - our SENCo; learning mentors or other members of staff, to help them to make sensible decisions.

We have written a Frequently Asked Questions document for parents and carers which is designed to address any queries you may have.

Our options at GCSE are based on our school value of diversity and choice with faith at the centre. We offer much more choice than many Bristol schools but can't guarantee everyone's first choice, although we will do our best!

If students or parents and carers have any questions about the options process, they should contact their tutor in the first instance or email Mrs Chaibi
