Year 9 options 

Throughout Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9), students study a wide range of subjects each year.

As they move forward into Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11), they will continue to study a range of compulsory subjects, but will also have an element of choice allowing them to shape their own learning programme according to their interests and career aspirations.
