Year 8 Options February 2020

Welcome to the options process for Year 8

These pages aim to give students and parents details of the courses available to students at Sharnbrook entering year 9 in September 2020.  All courses are of three years duration and continue to the end of year 11.

Students will follow the core subjects and can select up to 4 optional choices.  Some optional subjects may be equivalent to the hours of study and value of two GCSEs and would, therefore, count as two option choices.

Sharnbrook offers a range of GCSE, Applied GCSE and BTEC courses at various levels.  For an explanation of each type of qualification, please see 'Explanation of Qualifications’ or make use of the government’s National Careers Service website.

Sharnbrook Academy is continually improving the choice and provision for our students.

A number of staff will be involved in helping students at Sharnbrook to make subject choices.  If you have a query concerning the course choice process, please contact your vertical tutor or Mrs Tunnicliff.

Mrs K Tunnicliff

Deputy Principal
