Year 8 Options
At Swanmore, pupils follow a 3 Year Key Stage 4 and therefore are offered the opportunity to select their GCSE subjects during Year 8 ready to commence these in Year 9.
In Key Stage 4, pupils begin their GCSE (or equivalent) examination courses. In addition to core subjects, pupils choose four further subjects in Year 9 from the list below. At the end of Year 9, all pupils drop one of their option choices and continue with three option subjects in Year 10 & Year 11. One of those three choices must be either History, Geography or a Modern Foreign Language.
|Design and Technology
||Modern Foreign Languages
|Other optional subjects
*English Baccalaureate subjects
Please note that options are restricted to one per pre-set option block. Option choices are communicated to Year 8 in the spring and are subject to change.
