Options 2016

This page is mostly relevant to the parents of pupils in years 9 and 10. 

Parents can download or view as PDF documents:

  • A full and essential guide to Options at Harborne Academy (the full guide has details of the subjects offered)

  • The PowerPoint presentation used in assemblies and Options Evening

The deadline for the return of completed option forms is Wednesday 16th March.  Please return all forms to Mr Mclachlan.

Who does it affect?

Options primarily affects students in year 9, but if your child is currently in year 10 and following an EBacc pathway he or she can choose one option subject to do in year 11 in Option D.  If a student is currently studying GCSE History or Geography in Option D he or she will continue to do so until the end of year 11.

Where can I get further support?

Online as already indicated but we appreciate this is an important time in a student’s time with us and for that reason we have a Parents and Option Evening for year 9 on ADD DATE, and which it goes without saying, I would encourage you to prioritise attending.  Also, the leadership team at the Academy are available to help with the process, and subject leaders are available to help with specific enquiries either by email or telephone.
