Year 9 Options Evening Wed 10th February 2021

4th February 2021

Parents and carers of Year 9 students are invited to attend our virtual KS4 Options Evening which will be taking place on Wednesday 10th February between 4.00pm and 7.00pm.


The aim of this event is to support your child in deciding which subjects they wish to study in KS4. Whilst some students will have a very clear idea what they wish to study, others may need more support and guidance. We hope that the process we have put in place will allow your child to make the best possible choices for their future.


Options Evening will be hosted on Google Classroom. Each subject will have a virtual classroom displaying key information about their course/s. During the evening, there will be a series of live Google Meets, where teaching staff will produce a short presentation and then provide you with the opportunity to ask any questions. Where possible, we have tried to ensure each subject runs two sessions, so that you can build your own subject schedule for the evening.


The attached letter and Options Booklet explains the process in great detail. We have produced a parent guide to the evening which can be found towards the end of the Options Booklet.



  • We advise that you do not submit your child’s choices before Options Evening.
  • Please read the short parent guide within the Options Booklet before attempting to access the online choices form.
  • Once your child has completed the step to register for Sims Options Online, they can access the form through the following link (providing they are signed in to Google with their school email address and password): https://www.sims-options.co.uk/

Paper copies of the Options Booklet and Form can be posted upon request or collected from North Site Reception. Completed paper forms should be returned to the following address:

Wishing your child every success in the next stage of their education.
