Dear Parent/Carer

Further to my previous correspondence regarding Year 8 options, I am pleased to now offer Year 8 pupils the opportunity to complete an initial free choice option form using the link below:

Please note this is an initial free choice form to help us identify the subjects pupils might be interested in studying in Years 9 to 11 (KS4). It is NOT the final option form that determines what pupils will actually study at KS4. This will follow at a later date.

Pupils are asked to select three subjects from the lists provided, in order of preference, by the end of Friday 12th February.

Following analysis of pupils’ initial choices, another options form will be distributed with subjects arranged into three option blocks. At this stage, further details and guidance will be provided, along with an Options Booklet, to help your child make the right choices. Please note that some subjects may not be offered in the next round if numbers of pupils opting for them during the initial options trawl are too low.

I am sure you will agree that this is a very important time in your child’s school life and I look forward to working with you over the coming months to ensure he/ she has a smooth transition to KS4.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. D Mead

Deputy Headteacher
