Year 8 Options 2022 – Frequently asked questions

What is the Arts & Technology options process?

We are asking all Year 8 students to select the Arts and Technology subjects they follow next year for them to study their chosen subjects in more depth. This is not their GCSE choices but will be their first opportunity to make good choices, helping them practice important decision-making skills.

How many Optional Subjects can I choose?
Students will need rank the subjects Drama, Music and Photography in order 1, 2 and 3.

Students will need rank the subjects Art, Design Technology and Dance in order 1, 2 and 3.

What support is available in this process?

The Year 8 Options option booklet is published below.

From March, in lesson time, students will be receiving information from their teachers about the option subjects. All information about the courses will be in the option booklet. Please read the options booklet carefully and begin to discuss with your son/daughter about their choices.

How do I make my option choices?

Options choices will be made via SIMS online. Students will be sent an email link email on 14th March 2022.
