Deadline for options form

Once all the choices are made we then start the process of timetabling for next year and we write to every student during the Summer term to confirm their courses.  If we are unable to fulfil a student's top three options, we will always speak to them in person. 

If you have any concerns please contact Mr Rhodes, Head of Year 9
