Year 9 Options
At Ss Fisher & More High School, we hope to provide all of our pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum that suits their individual needs and increases the opportunities they have later in life.
Year 9 is an important year for our pupils as they are asked to choose the subjects they intend to study at GCSE. We know this can be a worrying time for some pupils and parents so we aim to make the process as trouble-free as possible.
In Year 9 pupils should be giving careful consideration to the subjects they choose. It is important to keep an open mind and not discount any subjects. This means sustained effort in all subjects throughout the academic year.
In this school, at KS4, it will be compulsory to study:
- English Language*
- English Literature*
- Core Science
- Additional Science
- Religious Studies
*In certain cases, it may be appropriate to study a single GCSE in English instead of English Language and English Literature but this will be decided by the curriculum leader.
In addition to this, you will be asked to pick three more subjects from three Option blocks that will be offered. As an example, in 2019, the option blocks are as follows:
