KS4 Options

In Year 9, pupils choose their GCSE options for KS4.

The process starts in March with our pupil and parent information evening. 

Pupils follow a core curriculum of English, Maths, MFL, Science, PE, Religious Education and Personal Development.  In addition, pupils can choose 3 additional option subjects, these are detailed in the Options Booklet.

Each pupil is encouraged to speak with subject teachers and family about their decision.  Should a pupil require careers advice they can contact the careers team via tws_careers@swale.at.

At The Whitstable School, we are keen to ensure that pupils make the right choices for their options and that the decision process is as smooth as possible.

If you have any further questions regarding the options process, please contact the Year 9 Progress Leader whose details are on the Contact Us page.
