Guided Choices 2017 - Year 8 - page 5

The time has arrived to start making some decisions about your next three
years at Great Torrington School and the courses that you wish to study.
You are required to take certain core subjects, but this is your opportunity to
choose to study others that interest you and will be useful to your future.
The following information in this booklet will allow you to make informed
choices. Remember to follow the instructions carefully and take your time
over the decisions you make. Most importantly, ask questions and
remember this is
your
future that you are deciding on.
We expect pupils to make broad and balanced choices in the option pathway
available to them. Students will be assigned pathways initially based on
their current academic attainment. There is flexibility for them to take any of
the subjects offered in the option blocks BUT they will be strongly advised to
take subjects in the recommended pathway.
Subject leaders have each written an outline of what their option subject
has to offer, to help you have a clearer view of what is involved in the
course and how it is assessed. These pages will also help to answer some
of the questions you may already have.
Your choices may affect your future career. So, think carefully! If you
already know what you would like to do in the future when you leave
education, ask about suitable subject choices. You will receive advice and
support in 3rs or you can speak directly to Mrs Peters, in the library.
