Options process

In the winter of Year 9 students will start making their decisions about what options to take in years 10 and 11.

Sharnbrook provide a range of activities and events to support students and parents through this decision making process, the highlight being the options evening where students and their parents can view the subjects, ask questions and find out from current students what it is like taking that subject.

For more information about our optional subjects please view the optional subjects page.
