Some schools have atypical admission ages and take pupils at a different age to typical secondary schools. This does not mean that you are required to move from your existing school if this is still the best option for you.
In year 8/9 you will be choosing your GCSE options at school.
It’s important to:
Research the subjects you are interested in by speaking to teachers and reading course options information
Look at how the course is assessed i.e. exam or coursework and think about what suits your learning style best
When making choices look at the subjects:
You enjoy and are good at
Which could link to a future career or a course you’d like to study after GCSE
You would like to study for 2 years or more
Try not to:
Choose the subject just because your friend is doing it
Choose the subject based on the teacher you have now, as that could change
