Year 9 into 10 Options

Introduction

Welcome to the Year 9 into 10 options process.

Due to COVID-19, we have had to adapt our approach and have created an online process to support students and parents/carers through this important phase to a child's education.

Subject Information

Below are links to information on all subjects on offer during Key Stage 4 at Barnwell School. Students and parents/carers will also have received information and guidance on the options process via Schoolcomms. Subject presentations will be live from 3rd March.

As all students are required to study GCSE English, Maths and Double Science, subject flyers have been included in the following table rather than presentations.

Parent Consultations

As part of the process, we will be holding subject consultations for 'new' subjects through our online parents' evening system. The consultations will be held between 4pm and 6pm on Monday 8th March 2021. Please click the links below to access the online booking system and the guide to booking appointments.

Options Interviews

In order to further support students and parents/carers with the options process, we will be holding options interviews from Tuesday 9th March to Thursday 25th March during the school day. Students will need to attend these appointments in school and parents will have the opportunity to join the interview via the parents evening system. The interviews are with senior members of staff and give students the opportunity to discuss their options, ask any questions they may have and receive support in making an informed decision about their final option choices.

If parents/carers are unable to participate but would like further information, please email Mrs Collier (k.collier@barnwell.herts.sch.uk).

Our parents' evening system can be accessed at the link below.
