  • Geography
  • Computer Science
  • French or
  • German
  • ASDAN (with approval from the school’s SENDCo)
  • Work Related and PDHE short courses (with approval form the school’s SENDCo)

and then three other subjects, as listed on the Option Form.

The English Baccalaureate
If students want to attain the English Baccalaureate, they will need to take at least

  • History or Geography and
  • French or German.

Please note: we offer a ‘free choice’ rather than option ‘columns’, so that a larger majority of students should get their preferred subject combination, but:

  • If numbers are too small, some courses may not run
  • If numbers are too big, we may have to ask some students to choose a different subject
  • If a student’s choices don’t fit with the columns created by the subject combinations chosen by the majority, they will be asked to choose a different subject.

It is therefore crucial you put down a reserve choice and be willing to take that subject.
