Year 9 Options

Introduction

Here you will find information about all the different subjects available at West Monmouth School and receive advice from your subject teachers on how to make the best choices for your future in that subject area.

The Welsh National Curriculum requirements, combined with the way we structure the timetable means that all pupils will take a range of subjects, so ensuring a broad-balanced curriculum.

When making your subject choices it is important to ensure that any choices made will not preclude options in terms of later decisions related to Careers and Educational Opportunities. With this in mind it is vital that your son/daughter has time to think through and discuss the implications of their choices.

Parents need to be actively involved during this process to ensure that appropriate choices are made.

It is important that all pupils are matched to the examination courses that meet their individual needs.

Education is constantly changing and as a result there is a need to continually update the curriculum.

Please read the option booklet which has all the information about each subject included as well as advice on how to make your option choices. There are also option video’s created to assist pupils with their choices.
