Year 8 Options

Each year, students in Year 8 complete their Options at Penrice, signalling the first time in their education where they have a say in what they study. Whilst this is an important milestone and some students will already be sure about what they want to choose, even what they wish to study beyond Penrice, others will be unsure and that is perfectly normal, especially under current circumstances.

We are ambitious for our students, and we want to create every opportunity for them to be able to study a broad and balanced range of knowledge and skills, as well as helping them to be competitive in an ever-changing world.

Students are encouraged to read the below brochure before making their choices. Please note that options are not given on a first come first served basis.
