SELECTING A BALANCED CURRICULUM

We feel strongly of the importance of a balanced curriculum for all our pupils. With this in mind, we urge pupils and parents to consider studying a humanity subject and a language subject in KS4. Studying in these two subject areas will give our pupils a wide breadth of educational experiences, as well as qualifications that will open many opportunities to them once they leave St Mary’s.  

 

Please Note. If you fail to fill the form in correctly it will seriously affect your chances of getting your preferred choices.   

You must complete your on-line Options form by Tuesday 16th March. If you can make your choices before this date you may return your form as soon as you are ready.  The early return of forms does not guarantee places on courses, although those received after the deadline may miss out on option choices.

 

Students will be advised of their option choices after Easter
