Year 8 Options

At this time of the academic year, students make choices about the options they would like to study at GCSE. At Dixons Cottingley we place a high value on an academic EBacc curriculum and as such all students will study English Language, English Literature, maths, combined science, RE, French and a humanities (geography / history). In Year 9 all students will continue to study geography and history to maintain a breadth of knowledge. Students will have one further option which they choose.

Below you can find the Year 8 options booklet which outlines they key information about courses you can choose from. Once you have made a decision you will need to complete the online form.

Year 8 Options Form

By Monday 6 July, all students in Year 8 will need to have completed the form online or returned the paper form to the academy by post. Once we have received and collated the options lists we will write to you via letter before the summer break to inform you of the option that has been allocated.

If you require any further information regarding options please contact Katie Knighton (Vice Principal) – kknighton@dixonsco.com or Paul Murray (Assistant Principal) pmurray@dixonsco.com
