Choosing your subjects
At each stage throughout your decision making process you will be given advice and there will always be people available to answer any of your questions.
Throughout the year, current students in the Upper 5 (year 11) will meet with the Director of Sixth Form, Senor Deputy Head and Director of Middle School, who will offer advice and guidance on your path to A Levels and life beyond. Student’s tutors and parents are fully involved in this decision.
In making your decision, it is important to consider the following:
- Do I enjoy the subject?
We encourage you to choose subjects that you have an interest in. You are required to study the subject for two years; it is therefore important to choose subjects you will enjoy as they can help you decide a possible career path.
- Do I need a particular subject for the career I have in mind?
If you are unsure about the subjects needed for a particular career, our Careers Advisor will be able to help you with looking into the requirements for certain careers. We recommend you do research around careers that are of interest, to ensure you make the best choice.
- Have I chosen a sensible balance of subjects?
You should consider the amount and type of work associated with your subject choices. It is also sensible to consider choosing from different subject categories to gain a breadth of knowledge.
