2017 – 2019 GCSE Pathway 3 Options Booklet

Introduction

Introduction This booklet contains details of the courses for study in Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11). The aim of the booklet is to help you to understand the compulsory and optional elements of the curriculum.

Further guidance to assist students with their decisions is provided in the following ways:

 Careers guidance organised by Miss Townshend (Director of Learning, Year 9) and Mrs Pickford (Careers’ Adviser)  Consultations with their Subject teachers  Discussions with their Form teachers  “Which Way Now?” Conference

How we will keep you informed:

 Once all options forms are returned online, we will start placing students into groups for next year. The deadline for this is Thursday 23 rd March .  If there are any changes that need to be made, you will get the options form back for amendment and/or counter signature. This will happen by the end of April 2017.  After this time, there may be a restriction on any changes requested.  At the start of July you will receive a letter confirming the options allocated.
