Introduction to Options

Welcome to the WBCA Options Site. This page contains key information to support you with choosing the subjects to study in Years 10 and 11.

The Options process will begin with the theme ‘Careers’ within L4L lessons. Within this theme we have tried to introduce students to a range of information to help develop an understanding of the future pathways available to them at 16, 18 and in their future career.

You will now have to make the first major choices to put you on that path. You will need to choose four subjects to study and there will be a number of subjects that you will no longer study from the start of Year 10. Subjects taken at this stage of your education can restrict the options that you will have available to you when you are looking to take Post-16 courses.

This section is designed to be used with the Options Booklet and the Options Site on the Student Portal where you can find information on every subject. Please take time to look at the information that different departments have provided.  These will give you some insight into what the course looks like, how it is assessed and what it can lead to in later education. 

There are two Options Booklets:

EBACC Options Booklet 2024

NON-EBACC Options Booklet 2024
