Please watch this video and review the options guidance which is contained in the booklet below. This contains information about pathways, courses and progression to further education and careers. Please also view our subject presentations before making your choices.

Once you have reviewed this section of the website, please discuss your options with your form tutor and subject teachers using page 4 of the options booklet in preparation for your options interviews commencing 31st January, 2022.

Following this, all options will need to be reviewed and collated by the Senior Leadership Team and confirmation will be sent to parents by 4th March, 2022. As always, we do not guarantee to honour students’ first choices for many reasons but we will endeavour to in the majority of cases.
