Choosing subject options for Year 10 is a major decision and an exciting opportunity for students. It is vital that choices are only made after the most careful consideration of all the alternatives. Some subjects are, of course, compulsory and have to be taken. Where students have the opportunity to select other courses, it is obviously important to maintain a broad and balanced programme of study in order to keep as many opportunities open to them as possible for the future. Throughout Year 9, students will complete a number of activities in PSHE to support them with selecting their Key Stage 4 options. So much in the future depends on the students achieving good GCSE results.
The more successful each student is; the more choices will be available when considering a career. At Great Sankey High School, we offer a wide range of courses to suit many individual tastes and needs, all of which provide opportunities for students to be successful and help prepare them for the next stage of their life. The whole Options process is designed to inform students and parents as fully as possible about the choices available to them. Please do not hesitate to contact Dr S Hale (Assistant Headteacher) if you require any additional information.
