Year 8 pathway & Options
We believe that students should experience a broad and balanced curriculum.
At THS we have a two-year option process. In the Development Days leading up to March, Year 8 students will go through the first stage of learning about what career opportunities are available to them by choosing different subjects. There will be an options evening for parents/guardians and students to explain the process. Once the students start their options in September of Year 9 they will not be able to change them, therefore it’s important to get it right.
If you need to discuss this with a member of staff please see your tutor in the first instance. They will refer you for a meeting with one of the Careers team which could involve you seeing a Careers Advisor. If students do not pick an option in Year 8 they will not be able to pick it up in Year 9.
All students will study:
- Religion and Philosophy
- Healthy Living: Physical Education
- Qualification PE or Non-qualification PE
- A language
- A Humanities subject
Students will need to choose from the following:
Plus another option of their choice from the above list, as well as the other Humanities option.
