Year 9 Options 2022-24

In years 7-9 at Croesyceiliog School, students have followed a curriculum designed for them by the school. As students prepare to enter Key Stage 4, they will have the opportunity to make some choices regarding their education, personalising aspects of their study.

Although students may not yet know what career they want to pursue in the future, Croesyceiliog School offers a broad curriculum allowing our students to study a range of subjects so that they can keep their options open.  Students will have to make some important decisions in the next few weeks to ensure that they choose the correct combination of subjects to study in year 10 and 11.  Making the right choices now will help to ensure that our students go onto achieve their full potential in the future.

Through registration periods and designated lessons, students will receive further guidance.

Detailed advice will be available to students and their parents and guardians to help our students choose the most suitable subjects.
