Year 9 Options Fair for Year 9 parents & students

Choosing options in Year 9 is a crucial juncture in your child's educational journey. To this end we would like to inform you of the Year 9 Options Programme Road Map leading to year 9 option choices so that you can best support your child. Please find attached a visual road map that outlines key dates and content that will be delivered in the coming weeks. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the Year 9 Options Fair taking place on Wednesday 6th March at Westside School, 4:00pm. This is an outline of the schedule:

Year 9 Options Fair: Wednesday 6th March 2024

4:00pm Brief Introduction in Main Hall (Lunch Hall)

4:15pm Time at Subject Stalls

5:00pm Final address Main Hall

5:30pm End 


This is an invaluable opportunity for you and your child to learn more about what each subject has to offer at Key Stage 4. Please find the Year 9 Options Fair Map below for your perusal.


Year 9 reports will be issued on the 7th March via email. You will then be able to discuss subject specific questions with your child's tutor on the 12th (JKPQ), 13th (RSTU) and 14th (VWXY) March.


In addition, please note that every student has been given a Unifrog log in via their school email. This platform is a fantastic online tool to help your child make an informed decision. Students can complete quizzes (as per the road map) and research topics of interest in the Unifrog Library. They can also access this platform outside of the school day. You can learn more about this if you visit our Student Life > PSHE within our school website. You can also find out specific details about each Key Stage 4 course by going to Our School > Curriculum.


The deadline for choices is Monday 8th April. I hope that this comprehensive programme will serve your child well and we look forward to meeting with you soon during the Options Fair. If you have a general question about this that you would like us to address in our presentation on Wednesday 6th March, please record it below:
