Introduction to the Year 8 Options

Introduction to Options

At the academy we are passionate that we equip every single student with the very best education so they can fulfil their potential. It is our duty to ensure our curriculum is relevant, personalised, challenging, exciting and appropriate.

We are approaching the time that your son/daughter will need to make their option choices for their GCSE/Vocational subjects.  This is a really key time and there are many factors to consider in making these decisions.

 

There are a number of things to consider when choosing your options:

The subjects you enjoy;

The subjects in which you are making good progress;

If you already have a pretty good idea of a future career, the subjects you need to study at Post 16. Some of you might not have a definite career path in mind - this is not a problem; choose subjects you enjoy as you are more likely to be drawn to a future pathway relevant to those subjects.

This time of the year can be stressful for students but can also be an exciting time where students will be able to make choices about the subjects they will be studying in Key stage four.

 

Preparing students for Options

In the lead up to Options we have involved year 8 students in a number of activities to get them thinking about their future career choices.

Activities have included:

  • Tutor time activities based around careers
  • Careers week assemblies
  • University talks
  • Industry talks
  • One to one / group time with Careers advisor
  • Use of Kudos (careers software)

To support you in your conversations with your son/daughter prior to options evening we have set up this options website. Each subject area has given you an outline of the key elements of the course, including key topics studied, assessment, and a video by the Coordinator or subject teacher explaining the subject. We hope you will find this process user friendly. Please take the time to sit with your son/daughter and look at this information, the decisions that you make will affect their future and it is important that you carefully consider the options.
