Y9 GCSE Options
The time has come for Year 9 to start to make one of the most important decisions they will make during their time at KAA: GCSE Options choices. The purpose of this page is to give an overview for parents of how students will be choosing their GCSE subjects.

Options Assemblies & Reflection Booklet

Students have been asked to watch one of these each week during their tutor / catch-up session on Mondays. Students have been set a GCSE options reflection booklet to complete in their tutor group Google Classroom alongside viewing the assemblies – you can download and view a copy here: GCSE Options Personal Reflection Booklet
