Year 8 Options

Dear parents/carers

Thank you to those who came along last night to the Year 8 Options Evening. For those who weren’t able to make it, below are the options booklet and pathway summary document.

The Options choices form is also below and this will be sent out as a digital groupcall form that you can complete digitally. If you need a printed copy of the form then please request this from reception by emailing them on A printed copy will then be given to your child to bring home.

To summarise:

  • Students are placed into either Pathway 1 or Pathway 2 based on their assessments this year.
    • Pathway 1 is for students who are secure and mastered in their subjects and projected to secure 5’s and above at GCSE
    • Pathway 2 is for students who are emerging and developing in their subjects and projected to secure 2-5 in their qualifications
  • The range of qualifications on offer to students in both pathways will allow progression to any Post 16 course and the world of work
  • Forms need to be completed by Friday 24th May

If you have any further questions, please do email me on FAO Mr Farmer or phone on 01404 823293 and I will get back to you as soon as a I can.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

Kind Regards

Mr S Farmer
