Until recently, students at the Academy have selected their options subjects in year 8 to allow them to personalise their curriculum from year 9, giving a 3 year Key stage 4. Following a full curriculum review at the Academy, year 9 is now part of key stage 3, giving three years for key stage 3. This model is aligned to the majority of secondary schools across the county and gives students the opportunity to study the full range of National curriculum subjects for three full years; giving time to deepen and broaden knowledge and skill sets.

We have now started the options process for 2023.  There is a variety of information below about the subjects on offer.  If you were unable to attend the options evening on 18th January, then we advise that you watch the Options overview video first to gain insight into this process.  Please note the selection window is from Monday 6th February at 3pm, until Friday 17th February at 3pm.
