Year 8

From Year 8 onwards students will have some choice in the courses that they study, whilst some courses remain compulsory and need to be taken by everyone. As students make course choices for study each year, they should make sure that they list these in priority order. Our college timetable is built upon the pattern of students’ choices. Once the timetable is complete it is not always possible to make course changes
