Options 2021

Welcome to our Year 9 Options Launch

This information is to support year 9 learners selecting their option choices at Matthew Moss High School.

On this site, you will find an introductory video from Mr. Jennings, and a video talking you through the options process from Mr. Glennie.

Sadly, we cannot meet you all face to face, but staff have created videos that inform you about the subjects on offer, and what to expect if you select them. The videos are comprehensive and can be viewed as many times as you wish. Additional information for each subject can be found in our Options Launch 2021 Booklet.

In addition to this, we have also arranged an opportunity for learners/parents/carers to make five-minute appointments where you can ask faculty leaders any questions they may have about the options on offer.

You will have received an E-letter which informs you how to make appointments with the relevant staff from the 2nd/3rd March if you so wish. This is an optional resource, and please conduct these meetings with your son/daughter present.

On Tuesday 4th March, an options questionnaire will be sent to the school email address of year 9 learners where the options choices should be selected. The deadline for year 9 option choices is Wednesday 17th March, at the latest. We will endeavour to confirm your child's option choices by the summer term, and we thank you for your patience.

Please enjoy spending some time viewing our videos, and talking about which option choices you would enjoy studying.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
