Options Choices 2019

Year 8 Options

Welcome to the Year 8 options booklet which you can access here the options application form can be accessed here.

This is an exciting time for students in Year 8, as they have the opportunity to choose some of the courses they will study at GCSE. For many, this is the first time they will be asked to make a decision about their education. Over the next few weeks it is vital that students make their choices based on three key factors:

  1. which subjects will support their future plans;
  2. which subjects they are good at;
  3. and which subjects they enjoy.

At Hove Park we are fully committed to ensuring that every student has the opportunity to study subjects that will give them the greatest possible range of choices in the future.
