Options

The Options process for Year 9 students has now been finalised. In Years 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4) students at David Nieper Academy will study a core curriculum that comprises of Maths, English Literature and Language, Science, non-GCSE PE and PSHE. In addition to this, students choose their options from a range of subjects offered by the academy.

 


 

Option Blocks 2022

Students must pick 3 options in total. One from Block A, Block B and Block C. These lessons will be taught at the same time so students cannot pick two subjects from any block. From these three subjects one choice must include at least one subject from Computer Science, French, Geography or History. Students can choose to study more than one subject from these if they wish.

In addition to these subjects students will all continue to study the following examined subjects; Maths, English Language and Literature and Science, plus the following non examined subjects; PSHE, PE and RE.
