Year 9 Options

Choosing options for Key Stage 4 holds much significance for students and it is a process that we take very seriously. Significant time and effort are invested into guiding students and parents through what can be some very difficult decisions that have to be made. Sheldon believes that students should have a broad and balanced range of subjects but also, they should be able to personalise their choices according to their needs and interests.

We also believe that physical education, PSRE, enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities are fundamental to ensuring that students continue to develop as individuals and develop the skills necessary for their mental and physical well-being now and in the future. These areas are not marginalised and continue to play a large part in the life of our students in Year 10 and 11.

This year, due to the pandemic, we are unable to have the face to face information evening that we had planned. However, every subject has put together a presentation giving more information about what each syllabus entails. The links to those presentations can be accessed by clicking on the relevant subject box in the grid below.

If after reading through the booklet, watching the subject presentations, attending parents’ evening (Wednesday 10th February) and the Year 9 Options Choices Information Evening (Thursday 25th February), you and your child need more help in making these decisions tutors and teachers will be able to offer further advice and guidance. Mrs Jo Brown, our Careers Adviser can also offer support and she can be contacted by email at
