Welcome to the Year 9 Options Process

In this section of the Kepier website you will find all the information you need to help you when choosing your options. There are sections for each subject area, along with help guides to assist you when selecting the subjects you would like to study in Year 10 and 11.

 

PARENTS – PLEASE REMEMBER TO APPROVE YOUR CHILD’S OPTIONS CHOICES (NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE ONLINE FORM)

 

How Does The Options Process Work?

At this stage in your education, you are able to have some choice in the subjects you will study in Years 10 and 11. You should read through the options information carefully, with your parents/carers, and discuss with them the subjects you would like to choose; bear in mind your future education and career intentions.

Don’t make up your mind until you have had the opportunity to talk to your teachers about your progress, and have obtained as much subject and careers information as possible.

Read all of the information on the webpage carefully and if you or your parents/carers require further information, contact either: the relevant subject leader; Mrs Adamson (Year Manager) or Mr Langley (Assistant Principal).

 

How Do I Make Sure My Choices Fit With My Future Career and Study Choices?

Careers information, advice and guidance is available from Mr Warkman (Assistant Principal) and your Curriculum for Life (CFL) subject teachers.
