1st Year Subject Choice

Below is a guide to choosing subjects in 1st Year. The guide includes advice on what to consider when choosing subjects as well information on each subject. Student choice of subject allows the school formulate a timetable but we fully appreciate that some students may not be so sure about some subjects. So, for the first eight weeks of term we allow our 1st year students to move freely between subjects if they are not happy with their choice. The result is that by November in 1st year the vast majority of students are happy in their subject areas and teachers can move on with teaching the syllabus and maximise the time available to them.

Equipment List

We are very aware that parents can be unsure of what is their son or daughter may require in terms of equipment for 1st year. Below is a list of equipment for all subject areas as a guide for parents. Students will be given a chance at the start of the year to get things organised so there is no panic in having everything in place but we also appreciate that items can be gathered gradually over the summer in order to alleviate costs in September. We are often asked about PE clothing. We don't have a specific uniform for PE, students can simply wear whatever casual wear they have that is suited to physical activity.
