Year 8 Options
Year 8 Options Process - Next Steps
In the absence of a face-to-face Options Evening, we have created this page to support your child in making the right Options choices (3 options subjects and a reserve) for study in Year 9. The next steps in this process are as follows:
- Click on the subject links in the table below to view a short video presentation from each Head of Department. The video should provide an overview of topics covered, skills developed and how the course is assessed etc. If you or your child have any questions, please then email the relevant Head of Department directly, via the email address provided.
- The Heads of Department for those subjects which are not delivered in Year 7 and 8 (Business, Citizenship, Media, Health & Social Care, Computer Science and Creative iMedia) will be visiting each SAM from Monday 31 January. This is an excellent opportunity for them to share information on their courses and answer any questions students may have.
- Once your child is ready to make their Options choices, please complete the online Options form (by 25 February 2022) via the SIMS Parent App.
How to complete the online Options form
Should you have any technical issues with the SIMS Parent App, please contact Mrs Blake-Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to assist you.
