Guided Options 2021

This is a very exciting time for our year 9 students as they start the process of deciding the subjects they want to study for their GCSE options. We are confident that every student at St Hilda’s has the opportunity to study a broad and balanced curriculum which is tailored to students’ abilities, interests, talents and needs.  You will find information and guidance here about the options process, the courses that will be available next year and the support our students will receive to help them make the right choices.

We are unable to invite parents into school this year to discuss the options process and so we have organised a virtual options evening instead. Students will of course, receive in person advice and guidance.
