Year 8 Options For September 2021


Years 9, 10 and Year 11 are very important years in education.  Students will be sitting exams in at least Year 10 and Year 11 which will have a huge influence on their future career paths. We aim to give our students as much advice and guidance as possible so that we can support them in making these important decisions.

Students choose their options in Year 8 to start GCSE and vocational courses in September of Year 9.

The key things that you must consider when making your choices are:

  •     Choose subjects that you enjoy
  •     Choose subjects you believe you will be successful in
  •     Choose subjects that will prepare you for your future


Core Subjects at Alleyne’s Academy are:

  •     English Language
  •     English Literature
  •     Mathematics
  •     Sciences – Biology, Physics, Chemistry
  •     RE
  •     PSHE (CONNECT)
  •     Games


Year 8 Options For September 2021

We will be conducting a programme of support for Year 8 to choose their options for September 2021 which will involve some work at the middle schools, some virtual experiences and hopefully later in the academic year some ‘in person’ experiences.
