Students in Year 8 are given the opportunity to personalise elements of the curriculum. Students will be given the opportunity to select further option subjects at the end of Year 9 to study in Years 10 and 11. These subjects are likely to form some of those options available for students to select.

The rotation enables all Year 9 students to continue to follow a broad range of creative subjects to both study and enjoy. The focus of each rotation subject is to develop the skills and knowledge learned in Years 7 and 8, as well as promote engagement. Students will study three of these subjects during Year 9. The subjects will be dependent on the subject they choose in Option A. For example if a student chooses GCSE Art in Option A then they will not do Art in the creative rotation.

Whilst we will endeavour to ensure students study their preferred choice we ask that all students put down an additional two choices in the event that we cannot timetable their first choice.

Please refer to the guidance in the subject choices booklet or watch the subject promotional videos in this IAG section. Students can also speak to their subject teachers in the Academy.
