Year 9 Options 2022-23

Year 9 Options Evening - Tuesday 17th May

Having studied at Crayford Academy during Key Stage 3, it is now the time for Year 9 students to choose the subjects they would prefer to study at Key Stage 4.  We offer a broad and balanced curriculum ensuring study of the traditional academic core but also offering career defining and creative subjects to prepare students for the next steps in their educational and vocational journey. 

We are aware that we are preparing students for future careers that don’t currently exist as well as the more traditional and well-known occupations and with that in mind, we believe that our curriculum offer will improve our students’ future life chances, enabling them to shape their future.

This is an exciting step in each student’s education and one for which they need to be fully informed.  We are pleased to be able to run our Options Evening on Tuesday 17 May 2022 where we can showcase our offer and subject teachers can discuss the GCSE or BTEC that they are offering and answer any questions.  Subject teachers have prepared videos, detailed power points and this Curriculum Booklet to give you as much information as possible to view in advance.

As you watch these videos and discuss the subjects together, we encourage students to choose subjects that they enjoy, and also to carefully consider which subjects they perform best in and which they may need for potential career paths.  Subject choices should NOT be made on which teacher may be delivering the subject or what a student’s friends have chosen as both of these could change.

Click HERE for the link to the Options Form, which will be live after the options evening on Tuesday 17 May 2022.

You will see that the survey allows you to put your first, second and third choices in each Option Block to allow some flexibility within allocation of choices. We will endeavour to provide each student with their first choice but this may not always be possible depending on numbers of students selecting each subject.  Please ensure that you do fill in a first, second and third choice – completing only a first choice will not guarantee that subject being allocated and may then mean an alternative is selected that the student would not have wanted. Please complete the survey by 4pm on Tuesday 24 May 2022.

I hope that the information we have provided will help the students to make informed choices.
