KS4 Options

During Year 9 all students select their preferences for the qualifications they wish to work towards at Key Stage 4. The vast majority of students are encouraged to choose the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects in addition to choosing options from a wide variety of Key Stage 4 subjects.

The Academy’s options process ensures that all students follow a curriculum that is right for them, while remaining as broad and academically rich as possible.


Options Booklet

Our Options Booklet for Key Stage 4 courses for September 2024 is available below

The booklet will enable you to view the wide range of options we offer at Key Stage 4 and learn how the process works. 

Options Launch Event

On Thursday 7th December 2023, we will run an evening for parents and carers of our current Year 9 students during which we will explain the options process and give an overview of the options available to HASU students.

The information shared on this evening will reflect the content of the Options Booklet and is intended to give parents and carers an additional source of information to help them make the best informed decisions possible.

Options Subject Information Evening

In the spring term, there will be an event for students to attend with their parents and carers where they will be able to speak to option subject teachers who will be able to have more detailed conversations about what each GCSE entails.


The Options Process

After Year 9 parents evening, students and their families will be invited to consider their options preferences carefully and complete an Options Preferences Form.

During the second half of the spring term, all students will be invited to a short meeting with a Senior Leader where they will indicate their preferences, recieve advice if necessary, and finalise their options preferences.

Options will be confirmed in the summer term, subject to changes to the timetable.
