During Year 8 students choose their optional GCSE and BTEC courses to study throughout Years 9-11. All students study the core of English Language & Literature, Maths and either double or triple Science, along with their core Physical Education lessons. Additionally students choose four more subjects. Most students must also choose at least one of the subjects that make up the English Baccalaureate: French; History; Geography. The rest of the subjects are made up from the following subjects (this was the list for our current Year 9 students and may change for our current Year 8 students): Art Business Studies Dance (BTEC) Drama Engineering Food Technology Graphic Design Health & Social Care ICT (BTEC) Music Psychology Religious Education Resistant Materials Textiles We will be in contact with parents and students later in the year to explain and support the option choices procedure.
