The Key Stage 4 Options Booklet is designed not only to help pupils and parents decide which subjects pupils wish to study in Years 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4) but also to provide general information about Key Stage 4.
At Key Stage 3 (Years 7 to 9), pupils have had little choice about which subjects they study. Most of these are specified in the National Curriculum. In Key Stage 4 pupils have some choice and some important decisions to make. Most of the subjects they study are again compulsory but now they have, in addition, to choose optional subjects to study to GCSE.
Please read the information in the booklet very carefully. These decisions are important as they will affect the direction and career choices pupils can follow in the future.
For further information regarding the contents of the booklet, please contact Mr Gomersall, Director of Operations, in the first instance.
