Year 9 Options

Key Stage 4 – Years 10-11 

Unfortunately, this year we are unable to hold our Options events in the usual format, where you would have been afforded the opportunity to visit the Academy and speak to Heads of Departments regarding subjects that you and your son/daughter may be considering.  Instead, we have provided all the information needed to recreate the experience virtually. 

We will be launching the GCSE Options process in the coming weeks; parents and pupils will have the chance to take part in some initial events: 

  • Year 9 will have an Options Talk delivered during their assemblies and tutor time (give the dates between which these will take place).

  • Year 9 parents will have the chance to chat to Mr Lakole, Ms Lewis and Ms Osman about their child’s progress during the virtual Parents’ Evening held on 11th March 2021

Our Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11) Programme of Study offers each student a focused Curriculum Pathway, as well as an option to incorporate personal interest into your child’s studies. 

Please click here to complete the Options form (will go live on Friday 12th March)  

The form enables you to choose the Options subjects that your son/daughter will study in Year 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4) at Harris Academy St John's Wood. Your son/daughter gets to choose one Humanities subject (GCSE History or GCSE Geography) and the other as an option. We also ask for a reserve choice in-case for any reason we cannot run one of the courses. 

Key Dates and Information

  • Each subject lead has prepared a short film (voice over) about what their subject offers for GCSE study.  The links can be found below; have a look at any subject which you may be considering alongside the options booklet.

  • Mr Lakole, Assistant Vice Principal will place a link to the options form on the evening of Friday 12th March.  This must be completed and submitted by Sunday 21st March 2021.

  • Options Interviews with a senior member of staff to discuss and finalise your choices will start from a date still to be confirmed. 

  • The final confirmation of Option Choices must be submitted week commencing Monday 3rd May 2021.

  • To further support your son/daughter, we have put together a ‘HASJW careers directory’ where you will find lots of information about different careers by subject. Do remember that these are not the ONLY careers available within each subject area, but the subject pages on the directory are a great place to start exploring your possible future career options. 

A letter of confirmation will send to you on the week commencing 10th May 2021 to confirm your son/daughter’s option subjects for the academic year 2021/2022. 

Options Booklet

Click on the icon below and read the options booklet carefully. Your aim should be to get as much advice as possible and make a wide choice of courses.  If you have any questions, contact the Assistant Vice Principal responsible for the Options process, your Head of Year and your Form tutor during assemblies and tutor time.
