Year 9 Options

This is an exciting time as for the first time in your school lives, you are moving to a stage where you are able to make real choices on what you study . It is important that all of us: your parents, subject teachers, form tutor and, of course, yourself, work together to make informed choices.

The Year 9 Options booklet is only the beginning of the decision-making process; please read it carefully, talk through the options with your parents, speak to your subject teachers and find the answers to any questions you may have. The decisions that you are about to make are some of the most important ones in your school life and they can have a profound effect on the opportunities available when you move into the Sixth Form or other post-16 education. We will, therefore, ensure we help and support both you and your parents in the decision-making process.

We are excited about the GCSE curriculum and firmly believe that it builds on our ethos of inspiring potential and achieving together. We hope to continue to engage and inspire you with this broad and challenging programme of study and wish you every success in this next important stage of your education at The Bulmershe School.
