This is an exciting time in a pupil’s school career, being able to choose the subjects they like or are good at, or both! The options they choose in Year 9 are a very important part of their learning journey. It is the first time they will have had some choice as to what they want to study, so it requires careful thought and consideration.

During the time when they are thinking about what options they would like to take, make sure to get as much information and advice as possible, from teachers, our careers advisor, parents or carers and online using my options website and the Careers Wales website.

Unfortunately, I must point out that it may not be possible to provide a pupil with the exact combination they choose, due to a lack of staff/resources or the lack of pupils choosing an option. If any problems arise, all of this will be discussed with the pupil in a one-to-one meeting with myself, and I will endeavour to make sure that they are on the right learning pathway.

If there any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at school.
