Year 9 Options | The power is in your hands!

Up until now the subjects you study have been decided for you. This is a pivotal point as you will now be selecting the optional subjects you would like to study in Years 10 and 11.

This section of the website contains a collection of information, advice and guidance to support you on making this important decision. We strongly advise you take the time to absorb as much of this information as you can. The welcome presentation explains all the steps in the process.

Parents will be sent a link via text (also below) to a Microsoft Form on Monday 22nd March where you can make your selections. You will need to use your RM unify log-in to access this. If you have any issues or need any advice and support, please email options@bloxwichacademy.co.uk

Your Future Career?

When you choose your GCSE options it can help to think about possible future careers. Our best advice is to study what you enjoy or are interested in learning more about, as if you enjoy it then you will be more motivated to achieve the best grades. Your future employers or education providers will look closely at your GCSE grades, so give yourself the best chance of scoring highly by choosing to study GCSEs you will enjoy.

This booklet is a useful guide to choosing your GCSE options. It also allows you to look at the subjects you enjoy and see what jobs they might lead to.

There is also some useful advice about choosing GSCE options on the Success at School and Find Your Future websites.
