What are my Yr 9 options?

In Year 9 you will have the opportunity to decide which subjects and courses to take in Years 10 and 11.  This stage of your education is called Key Stage 4.  You will still have to study the Core subjects but you can now choose other courses that interest you. Choosing what subjects and courses to take for Key Stage 4 is probably one of the first big career decisions you will make.


What subjects do I have to study?

Most students on Guernsey get to choose what subjects and courses to take in Years 10 and 11 (KS4) during the spring term of Year 9. The options you can choose will vary slightly at each school however there is a Core Curriculum at every school which will usually consist of:

· English
· Maths
· Science
· Work related learning and Careers Education
· PSHE and Citizenship
· Physical Education
· Religious Education

What other subjects can I choose to study?

Your school will offer subjects in option blocks and you will choose subjects from each option block.  Some schools may also offer College Link courses in conjunction with the College of Further Education and these may be of interest to you if you would like to find out more about vocational areas of study.

The set of options available at each school will vary so it is important to check through the options booklet to find out exactly what subjects and courses are on offer at your school. Have a look at your school link on this page.
