Year 8 Options: 2023 - 2026

At St Thomas More Catholic High School we take great pride in being able to offer our pupils a wide range of curriculum subjects.  During Year 8, pupils decide their future pathway of study, selecting three subjects that they will follow from the start of Year 9 through to Year 11. 

It is important that pupils continue to receive a broad and balanced curriculum, whilst also having an option process that allows them to develop deeper skills in their chosen areas.  During the Options process, support and guidance will be offered to all pupils, parents and carers every step of the way.

 The Options Process schedule is as follows:
