Year 9 Choices for GCSE
During Year 9 students start their GCSE Choices process. This is an important and exciting part of their educational journey at Brakenhale School. Students will need to think carefully about the subjects they want to pursue, seek and listen to advice and then select them ready for the GCSE years 10 and 11.
We produce a booklet to outline the subject choices available and to explain the content of the courses. It supports the:
- ‘GCSE Choices’ evening
- subject fayre which gives students an opportunity to speak to teachers
- website dedicated to ‘GCSE Choices’
- assembly based on ‘GCSE Choices’
- support in Tutor time and respective resources
- one-to-one interviews as required
Year 9 Choices Evening for Key Stage 4 Curriculum
Students make their choices using an electronic platform called ‘SIMS Options Online’.
A personal invite code will be emailed out to parents.
The booklet from last year can be found below for information but will be subject to change for 2024-2026.
