Year 9 Options

In year 9 students decide which subjects they want to study for their GCSEs. We call these their Options.

Some subjects have to be studied, but students can choose others. This page will help you support your child as they make these choices and answer some questions that you may have.


All students need to take the following subjects:

  • English Language and Literature

  • Maths

  • Science - either Combined or Separate Sciences

  • Core PE

  • Religious Studies (including Philosophy and Ethics modules)

See our Options Booklet for more information.
