Making decisions about which subjects students wish to continue studying is an important time in any child's education. We think it is really important that students continue with a broad and balanced education so that they keep their options open for future opportunities in an ever changing world.
We have found that allowing students to make these choices at this time have meant they have been able to continue with their hobbies, sports and extra curricular activities whilst still studying their chosen subjects.
Several subjects remain compulsory while others are chosen from a system of options. Students will study fewer subjects but in greater depth. Inevitably they will have to decide which subjects they wish to continue and which they will no longer study. We want to ensure that all students are given the best advice and guidance about the curriculum choices they make.
