King James' School

KS4 Options

Welcome to KS4 Options

The options chosen for KS4 will affect how students will spend their time at school for the next two years. These choices will also influence what options are available in the future. The options that students select will be studied alongside our core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, MFL, Core PE and PSHCEE

It is vitally important to choose subjects for the correct reasons. Spend some time thinking about what subjects your child enjoys doing, what keeps them interested, motivated and something they can engage with.

Options Booklet

This booklet contains all the information about the subjects students can choose, the exams and assessments for each subject and an overview of the learning they will recieve.
