About the options process
Welcome to Ellesmere Park High School’s options process which outlines all the courses available to students in Year 10. Students can also download the Option Booklet form from this page.
The purpose of the guided options process is to:
Inform parents and Year 9 students of the courses that are available from September 2023
Explain the course content and structure and how each course will be assessed
Help in decision-making for the next stage of school life and beyond
At Ellesmere Park High School, we aim to provide all students with a curriculum that is tailored to the needs of each individual and which leads to a range of possibilities post 16. Some subjects will continue to be compulsory (core) as identified by the Government in the National Curriculum. The Curriculum guides, in line with aspirational destination choices encourages students to follow the English Baccalaureate pathway. For some students this may not be suitable, students will be advised as to which pathway is most suitable for them.
Making the right choice of subjects within the pathway is vital, and we would encourage you to take time to ask questions during options evening to ensure you have all the help and guidance you require.
It is strongly advised that you discuss with your child’s teachers whether particular options are appropriate for them. Further meetings will then take place to ensure your child is fully guided in the process and has the best possible chance of getting their first choices.
Your son or daughter will be informed of their final choices early in the summer term.
