GCSE Options Key Information
We offer a wide range of subjects at GCSE and students are asked to select four options at the end of Year 8 to begin study in Year 9. The subjects are arranged in blocks and students must select one from each block. Students are also asked to provide three back-up choices, in rank order of preference.
Key upcoming dates
- 1st April - deadline for completion of online options form (single submission)
- June - letters sent home with confirmation of allocated subjects
GCSE Options booklets
These booklets contain all the information you need to make informed choices about which subjects to chose, as well as the general options process.
GCSE Options Form example
Here is a form to aid you in selecting your GCSEs. It illustrates how the blocks are laid out and explains how to make your choices.
Please note - this is not the form you will use to submit your options. An online options form will be available on Thursday 25 March 2021.
