Students in Year 8 have reached the most important point in their school life so far – choosing the subjects that they will study at Key Stage 4. Option choices allow students to pick the subjects that they would like to study alongside a ‘core’ of subjects that are seen as essential such as English, Maths and Science.

Getting the right choice of subjects is crucial. The decisions can affect or determine what a student’s future will hold; the job that they do, the apprenticeship they follow, the College or University course that they take.

At The Oakwood Academy, we have a three year Key Stage 4 that gives students more time to study their chosen subjects and achieve the best results that they can. This will secure the best chances for students when they leave The Oakwood Academy.

Year 8 Option booklets are available here or for further information contact Mr Booth at The Oakwood Academy.
