Year 9 Options

Students in Year 9 decide which subjects they will study over the next two years for the Key Stage 4 curriculum. This decision is a very important one as it will affect:

  • Progress over the next two years.
  • Choices for further study at the end of these two years.
  • Prospects for employment.

At the start of the Spring term, information and resources are shared to help students make these decisions, so it is important that time is spent looking at all of the options and discussing decisions with parents/carers, teachers and tutors.  This year, details of all the courses that are available at Charters, both compulsory and optional, will be uploaded after the remote Options evening on Thursday 3 February. 

If you have any questions after looking at the options and the process of submitting choices, students should speak with their tutor, subject teachers or Head of Year.
