Year 9 Options

At Greatfields, we believe in providing the highest standard of education to create a firm foundation for our students’ future success. Selecting subjects for the Key Stage 4 programme (year 10 and 11) is an exciting time for our year 9 students.

Alongside their core subjects, Greatfields offers a range of option courses in both GCSE and Vocational qualifications that will interest our students, respond to their varied needs and open routes to a wide variety of career prospects. The courses are devised so that students acquire a broad and balanced curriculum with ample opportunity for development.

The Options Booklet outlines vital information about the Key Stage 4 programme, and the subjects in particular, as well as give information about the consultation procedure.

Below, we have placed a timeline of key dates leading up to the options interviews and selection process.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Head of Year 9; Mr. J Rashid jura@greatfieldsschool.com
