Year 8 Options

Year 8 Options Booklet for 2018

During the first two years of your son’s/daughter’s education at King Charles I School, they will have studied a wide range of subjects laying the foundation for study at examination level in Years 9, 10 and 11. It is very important that certain subjects should be studied throughout the period of secondary education, these subjects are compulsory and form the core curriculum.

Core curriculum:

English Language English Literature Maths Science A humanity (Geography/History) A modern foreign language (French/German) Physical Education Personal, Social & Religious Education

We are delighted that all students will be able to study:

  • a language (French or German) as there is increasingly more evidence that employers are looking for competence in languages in today's globalised world
  • a humanity (History or Geography) as essay writing skills are vitally important preparation for A Level courses, employment and university courses.

The rest of your son’s/daughter’s timetable will comprise of their options choices. Some of the subjects offered in Year 9 are new and have not been studied before. Some are familiar to students from their study in Key Stage 3. Below you will find a full list of all of the subjects we offer at Key Stage 4 and further details about each course. If you have any further questions relating to the individual courses please contact the head of department whose email is provided with the subject details.

Further information about the options process will be provided during the ‘Options Evening’ on Thursday 1st March 2018.
