This video will go through the requirements for options selection, how to use the online platform to select your options and how to submit this to the school. There is also careers advice information from our Careers Lead, Christine Sanders, along with a brief outline of courses for subjects that students have not had a chance to study before Key Stage 4, from subject leaders.
Another good document to look at is our Key Stage 4 prospectus which gives a detailed outline of each subject available at GCSE. You can find that here: KS4 Prospectus
If you missed the Advisor webinar earlier in the year regarding selecting GCSE subjects, you can find a recorded copy of this on the following Advisor website: https://www.adviza.org.uk/past-webinars simply scroll down to “12th January, Choosing your GCSEs”
All Year 9 students have a personal log in for Unifrog, an online careers platform that has a wealth of subject information and careers that these subjects could lead to. Students have had sessions in school regarding how to navigate the ‘Subject Library’ which may also be helpful in making your decisions. Please find access to this site here: https://www.unifrog.org/sign-in
As you will be aware, we also have a virtual parents evening on the 24th of March where you will have a chance to speak to subject teachers before finalising your decisions.
The final deadline for options choices is Monday 4th April 2022 through the online ‘Tools’ platform, accessible through the school website here: https://options.chalfonts.net
