We are asking students to fill in their option preferences this year online through VSware. Instructions below. This form can be used as a guide before you go online with your final choices.

Please indicate by placing a number 1 in the box the subject you would like most to study, a 2 in the box of your second choice, a 3 in your third choice and so on until at least 6 boxes are filled. This gives us vital information regarding subject provision. We would prefer if students pick the subject that they enjoy and participate most effectively in.

Whilst every effort will be made to facilitate students in their choice of subject, your child's first preference cannot be guaranteed and is subject to resources provided by the DES.
