Year 8 options form

Below is the form for Year 8 students to select the GCSEs they wish to study. You can refer to our guidance for parents, carers, and students booklet and page 10 of our options evening presentation if needed.

All Year 8 students must complete and submit the form by the Friday 3 April 2020 deadline.

Please note - you will only be able to submit the form once, so please make sure it is correct and you are sure of your choices.

If you have any questions regarding the completion of this form, please contact reception via email: reception@sns.hackney.sch.uk


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.

For more information, please read our options information letter, which we sent to parents on Tuesday 4 February 2020.
