Year 8 Options

At Tupton Hall School we give students three years to study towards their GCSE qualifications (Years 9, 10 and 11). We think this will give them an even greater chance of success.

In Year 8 we ask students to choose their GCSE subjects. We offer lots of guidance for students their parents to help with these big decisions.

Link to the FORM to ask questions about options/Parents' Evening.

Recording of the VIRTUAL Year 8 Options Information Evening on Tuesday 16 March.
