Guided Choices Evening

Welcome to the Year 9 'Virtual' Guided Choices Evening 2021

Whilst we are disappointed not to be able to welcome you to the Guided Choices evening in person, we hope the information below will give you an insight into what to consider when making your GCSE subject choices.

If you start with Mr Poole's introduction video and view the sections in order, it should provide a clear picture of how to proceed. 

However, whilst we have endeavoured to provide comprehensive information, we appreciate you are likely to still have questions.  If this is the case please ask a question/s using the Q & A form at the bottom of the page and we will reply asap during the w/b 8 March.  We are delighted to have students back in school next week and there will be opportunity for you to ask questions in lessons, tutor time and assembly.

This page will remain live on the website until Friday 19 March - the deadline for submitting your choices - so please take your time and re-visit the information as often as you need.
