An Options Evening is held at the start of the Lent Term for pupils in Year 9 (Kinder) and their parents, to help inform the decision making process, before final choices have to be made at the end of January.

GCSE optional subjects are arranged in option blocks and whilst we naturally attempt to satisfy the desired combination of courses chosen by each individual pupil, we are not able to guarantee that every combination can be made available.
