Year 9 Options Process
The purpose of the booklet below is to provide information for parents and students about the courses on offer in Meole Brace School in Key Stage 4 in readiness for the next stages of education.
In choosing options it can be difficult knowing just where to start. One appropriate starting point would be to look at those subjects which provide most interest. If you enjoy a subject you are more likely to do well in it. It is also often the case that you prefer your stronger subjects so again it makes sense to choose them. At the same time these interests will be beginning to guide your thoughts as to what you want to do after Meole Brace School. The core subjects provide balance and breadth but your options remain important. If you are keen to follow particular courses beyond the age of 16 check on the most suitable subjects and likewise if you have particular career thoughts in mind look at how these match your option choices.
