Year 10 GCSE Options
Welcome to this year's GCSE options at Somercotes Academy. This past year has been a challenge for all of us, however, this is a positive opportunity for us to now to focus on the future. After three years at Somercotes Academy, we are confident that you are now able to move onto study at Key Stage 4. I hope you take the time to take a look at the videos that we have created for you to inform you about the choices that we have available. Choosing subjects to take at GCSE can be a thought-provoking and sometimes daunting experience, staff at the Academy will, as always, be on hand to help you. In addition to the core subjects; English and English Literature, Mathematics, Combined Science, Humanities (with a choice), Citizenship/Personal Development and Physical Education, there will be the opportunity for you to choose four subjects.
I look forward to welcoming you to our GCSE programme later on this year.

Additional help to make your choices:
This year, students will need to register then choose their subjects online.
During lesson time, Year 9 students will be asked to click on a link that the Academy will send to their Office365 account. They will then need to follow the instructions onscreen to register.
The Academy will send you a link to the email address that you have provided the Academy. If you do not receive an email, please could you contact the Academy? You will need to register in order to confirm that you are satisfied with the choices that your son/daughter has made.
*Make sure you have watched the videos that are on this webpage and spoken to your subject teachers before making your choices.*
