The power is in your hands!
Up until now the subjects you study have been decided for you. This is a pivotal point as you will now be selecting some subjects to study in years 10 and 11. Making well informed choices about the next steps on your journey will allow you to access your desired pathway.
We have brought together a collection of information, advice and guidance to support you on this single webpage. We strongly advise you take the time to absorb as much of this as you can. The welcome presentation explains all of the steps in the process.
Your options form has been emailed to your school email address with instructions on what you need to do. If you have any issues accessing this please email Mr J Till on firstname.lastname@example.org
