Year 9 Options

At Salford City Academy, our aim is to bring out ‘the best in everyone’. As our Year 9 students begin to make important decisions that will affect their future, we aim to ensure that each child has the right guidance to put them on a path to reach their potential.

In preparation for choosing their options, our Y9 students have participated in a virtual campus visit with Greater Manchester Higher.

The Choices workshop provided students with an insight into what pathways are available to them for when they leave school so they can make their option choices with a long-term plan in mind.

GM Higher’s Parent & Carer guide includes a section on Choosing GCSE subjects as well as the student Uni&Me guide which outlines Do’s and Don’ts for choosing GCSEs (You may also find the What Can I Study - Part 1 - Introduction - GM Higher video useful)

Feedback from the GM Higher team was excellent as Salford City Academy students had lots of fantastic questions.

Students have experienced a virtual tour of the University of Salford and have the chance to ask a student ambassador questions about what university is really like.  

Students, parents and carers can ask GM Higher staff any questions at any time about Higher Education via Ask Us - GM Higher
