Year 9 Options and Parents' Evening

In Year 9, students have reached a very important stage in their education where they have to make decisions about which subjects they will continue to study in Years 10 and 11. To aid these decisions we ask that all parents and students read the ‘GCSE Options Booklet’ carefully, this has been sent home alongside academic reports in January and is available to download below. Important information to aid with options decision making is summarised below.

  1. Live ‘town hall’ options talk – This will be streaming live on our website on Wednesday 9th February at 4pm, this will give you an opportunity to hear essential information on the ‘Options’ process. This session will include a live Q&A.
  2. Link to recording of the Town Hallhttps://bit.ly/NA-Yr9-OPTIONS 
    If you miss this session you will be able to access the recording by clicking on this same link.
  3. Subject specific information videos – After the town hall, from 4:30pm, all videos which will give you information about each of the options will appear on this page.
  4. Completing your Options choices – After the town hall, all students will be able to submit their options choices by completing this form: https://forms.office.com/r/0JyxVXuUVq. The deadline for completing this form is the end of the day on Monday 21st February 2022. You must do this by logging in with your school e-mail otherwise the link will not work.
  5. Additional guidance – if you require any additional guidance, please do contact Mr Walton (s.walton@northampton-academy.org) or Mr Smith (r.smith@northampton-academy.org). Please include the best contact details for yourself so that we can discuss.
