YEAR 8 OPTIONS – THE PROCESS

 

Welcome to the Year 8 Options webpage. In this area you will find information for students and families to help guide you through the Options process. At Treorchy Comprehensive School we operate an ‘accelerated’ Key Stage 4 curriculum, where students start their qualification courses in Year 9. This enables them to have additional time studying those subjects to ensure they get the best outcomes possible. Please use the guidance videos, core and option subject videos and electronic options booklet on this page to help get the information you need.

We also held a live Options event on 11th March 2021 for students and parents to attend sessions about subjects they are interested in studying, together with a Question and Answer session with the Head of Learning and Skills for Year 8, Mrs Mantle. The presentations from the evening for each subject can be found below for you to peruse at your leisure.

If you have any questions please contact the Year 8 pastoral team at: Year8@treorchycomp.org.uk

Key dates to remember:

Tuesday 16th March (3:00pm) – final deadline for options forms to be returned to the school. These forms will be done electronically via students’ Hwb email addresses.
