Options 2023 Launch Letter to Parents

Year 9 Options 2023

Welcome to Budmouth Academy’s options process. We hope you find these resources helpful in deciding your option choices and remember that staff are available to answer any questions you may have. It is crucial that students engage fully in this process to avoid making the wrong choice of course for the next two years.

Options Evening Presentation

online options booklet

This booklet runs through details for the courses undertaken as part of the core/compulsory KS4 curriculum as well as each one of the option courses. It also provides information about how to allocate your choices across each option block.

Links to Careers guidance and presentations.

Even at this age there are very few choices you can make that would completely close off your future opportunities. The choices you make at the end of Year 11 will be much more significant in terms of your long term plans. However, there are some links that you may find interesting to look at. They may even get you thinking about a change in career!
