Year 8 Options Evening – Thursday 25th January 2024

Thank you to all those who were able to attend the Year 8 Options Evening! 

We were delighted to welcome the parents and carers of over 140 of our Year 8 scholars to the Year 8 Options Evening, which took place on Thursday 25th January 2024. The evening was designed to give parents and scholars an overview of the Options process and the subjects available, to support you and your child in making informed choices about their future studies, with presentations delivered by Jayne Harman, Acting Deputy Headteacher for Quality of Education. The presentation can be viewed here.

Scholars were given a copy of the Options Booklet which provides greater details of the courses available and their suitability for future study and careers. Scholars who were unable to attend will receive their Options Booklet during tutor time on Monday 29th January 2024.

The 2024 Isca Options Booklet can be viewed and downloaded here.

Please take some time to look at the specifications and suitability of each subject for their future goals, with your child.

Scholars will choose three Option subjects they would like to study and will be allocated two of these, the other is a reserve choice subject. The subjects on offer are either GCSE or level 2 Technical qualifications (these are the equivalent to a GCSE).

Scholars will make their subject selections during tutor time week commencing Monday 5th February.

Please bear in mind the entry requirements for local Colleges when making choices.
