Year 9 Options Information

We at St Benedict’s understand the importance of supporting your child through the choices that will determine their journey through the next stage of their school experience.

 

The option process has been designed to provide the structure, advice and guidance needed to make informed decisions about the qualifications that will be studied. We advise students to maintain a broad and balanced choice of subjects to ensure that future pathways are kept open.

 

Although career direction and particular interests are important, we believe that studying subjects that students enjoy also plays an important role when making option choices.

 

Students are more likely to succeed if they choose subjects that they enjoy and have a strong interest in.

 

 

OPTIONS INFORMATION:

Our Options Evening was held in early February, and students and parents had the chance to visit subject areas, and find out more about their Options for 2020.

 

Below you can re-visit the presentation that was given on the night, and also view the Options Booklet that students have been given.
