Course Availability

The School will endeavour to provide all the courses in this booklet, but this

depends on sufficient students applying and staff availability. The timetable cannot

accommodate all combinations of subjects; all students are therefore asked to

select two reserve subjects in the event of a chosen subject, or combination of

subjects, being impossible to provide. Students are also encouraged to make use

of the extensive Careers and Work related books available in the main School

Library and the Careers Suite.

Resources available to help you in your choice:
