We offer a wide range of subjects at GCSE and students are asked to select four options at the end of Year 8 to begin study in Year 9. The subjects are arranged in blocks and students must select one from each block. They are also asked to provide three back-up choices, in rank order of preference. Please see the Guide for Parents and Carers and the Subject Information Booklet below for more information.
