2017-2019 GCSE Options Booklet 4 Option Pathway

P a g e | 7

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.
