Closing Statement

Over the next few weeks pupils are required to carefully consider which Options Subjects they wish to select.

It is vital that pupils only select Option courses that they have a keen interest in. Your Form Tutor and Year Leader are available to support and guide pupils in the decision-making process, and it is suggested pupils seek out the Subject Leader of any course they are interested in studying to find out further information about the course and their suitability.

Pupils will be required to log in to the school’s electronic Options Portal in order to submit their Option course selections.

We will endeavour to allocate each pupil’s preferred courses, but this is not always possible due to timetabling restrictions and the fact that all courses are offered subject to sufficient uptake. In such instances, you will be allocated your reserve course.

Once a pupil has logged into the school’s electronic Options Portal and confirmed their preferred and reserve courses, they are committed to taking whichever of these courses they are allocated. Pupils will not be allowed to change their Options after they have logged into the Program and selected their preferred and reserve courses.

The school will automatically allocate under-subscribed Option courses to any student that does not submit their preferred and reserve courses by the deadline date of Tuesday 18th April 2023

We hope that pupil are happy with the information and support provided and that the next important stage in their education is challenging, rewarding and enjoyable.
