Year 8 Pre-Options Week

Following on from the success of our Year 8 Pre-Options process last year, we expanded the guidance and information on offer with a week of Pre-Options activities and events. 

During the Pre-Options week beginning 25th January, Year 8 students experienced an introduction to the options process and the choices available for subjects studied to GCSE, starting in Year 9.

Students have until Friday 12th February to select 3 to 4 pre-option subjects to study (dependent on their literacy ability) to maximise their progress through Year 9 and beyond.

The week included assemblies to introduce subjects on offer, followed by taster sessions in Construction, Drama, Business Studies, Computing, Spanish, Catering and many more.

Students also visited an Options Fair and subject stalls.  Teaching staff and students currently studying those subjects were on hand to answer questions.

In addition, students had options meetings with our careers advisors and mentors during the week.  The academy also invited parents and carers, alongside students, to Year 8 Parents Evening and Options Event to discuss student pre-option choices further with subject teachers, senior staff and Connexions.
