Year 8 Subject Choices

The Year 8 subject choices process is an exciting opportunity for students to personalise their curriculum in Year 9.

This process increases students’ motivation and enjoyment as they have more time to study the subjects they enjoy and have the opportunity to drop a few subjects they know they are unlikely to study in the future.

All students study a broad and balanced curriculum including the Core subjects of English, Maths and Science and all continue with Ebacc subjects including at least one Modern Language, Geography and/or History together with Religious Studies, ICT and Core PE. In addition, students then choose four additional subjects from over 22 curriculum choices to trial in Year 9 as a ‘foundation’ for KS4. This successfully allows students the opportunity to trial new subjects without commitment to ensure they study the subjects that they enjoy and are good at in Year 10 and 11.
