GCSE Choices

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this exciting period of time, when Year 9 students choose the courses they want to study at GCSE. For many students this is the first time they will be asked to make a decision about their education, one that is very important.


Over the next few weeks and months it is vital that students make their choices based on three key factors, which subjects they are good at, which subjects they enjoy and future plans. When a student moves from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4 it should be clear that they are planning for the future, as this decision will shape their prospects in an ever-developing workplace.


Information, Advice and Guidance

During the options process, students should gather information from as many people as possible – parents, teachers, tutor, friends, brothers and sisters. The school will also provide advice and guidance in assemblies, subject lessons and tutor time. We recognise that this can be a stressful and worrying time, and if parents/carers or students have any questions, please make sure they talk with their Year 9 Tutor and the Pastoral Team.


Finally, we would like to thank you for your continued support as a parent/carer. The following weeks are very important and will help every Year 9 student be successful in Year 10 and 11. We look forward to celebrating their achievements in the future with you.

Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
