Options

At St Thomas More Catholic High School we take pride in offering our students a rich curriculum offer that meets their needs.

Year 8 students are now embarking the options process with a series of events designed to support and advise them in making the right choices that meet their individual needs.

From December, and throughout the Options process, form time discussion regarding choices are scheduled and completed.  Students will also have a career interview giving independent careers and course guidance.  These interviews take place within school every Tuesday and Friday.  Additional interviews can be arranged, if required.

The schedule of events is as follows:
