Year 8 Choices Process 2024

This is the first opportunity in your school career where you are able to make choices about some of the subjects you will study. It is important that you spend time thinking carefully about your selection. There are so many fantastic subjects to choose from, but you need to make sure you pick subjects that you are going to enjoy and will be successful in.  

In Year 9 all students will study: 

English  History
Maths Geography
Science  Religious Education (Philosophy & Ethics)
Spanish or French  

Students will then select one creative choice and two open choices

Creative Choice  Open Choice 
Art Art
Computing Business
Dance Child Development
Drama Computing

Technology- Food French or Spanish (2nd language)
Technology- Textiles Health & Social Care
Technology- Timber Media
  Physical Education (theory & practical)

  ASDAN (invitation only)


We hope that the advice and guidance from the recent parents’ evenings-along with Unifrog and the videos from new subjects below-will give you enough information to make an informed selection for your choices for next year.    

If you have any further questions, please contact your child's form tutor or email
