Year 9 Options

A change of Key Stage

Year 9 marks the transition from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4 for each student.

At Ks4 students study an examined statutory Core Curriculum of Mathematics, English, Science and Welsh.

The Options Curriculum makes up 40% of each student's timetable.

The Core and Option curricula are externally examined throughout the key stage, terminating with a GCSE or equivalent graded outcome for each learner.

Which subjects each student opts for needs to be a considered and informed choice.
