Year 8 Options
During Year 7 and 8 the students have had the opportunity to study all the subjects we offer in the Technology and Modern Foreign Language faculties. In Year 9 the depth of these studies increases. To ensure students have sufficient curriculum time to benefit fully from the Year 9 courses, we are asking them to choose the following: one Modern Foreign Language and one Design Technology area.
A summary of the option decisions to be made are below:
