KS4 Options

The KS4 Options process will take place in the Spring Term of Year 9. It is a crucial time in your child's journey at OCA as they prepare for developing their knowledge, understanding and skills at GCSE level have embedded their subjects at KS3.

As part of the process, students will receive a booklet which details all the courses available, the content involved, how they are assessed and future careers they may lead into. A short video from the head of department can be found alongside more detailed information on the courses available, on the school website under each curriculum area. There will then be a virtual presentation evening in where you will be informed of the 3 pathways and 4 option blocks at KS4 and some background information in how best to inform your choices. During this evening, there will also be an opportunity for students and/or parents to ask any questions to the relevant heads of department.
