Your Options

March 2021 - For current Year 8 students: 

We would normally be well underway with our Options. However we have put the process on hold for now because the two lockdowns have meant that Year 8 students need more experience in their subjects before they will be ready to make sensible decisions.

We are looking at the new timeline for Options which will include support for students to help them make good decisions for their future.

We will be in touch when we have dates to share.

Please click the link below to download a copy of last year’s Options Booklet 2020 for your reference:

There is a support email account: options@beaumontleys.leicester.sch.uk where parents/carers and students can ask questions about options choices.

The deadline for Option choices is to be confirmed.

*Note: three subject areas have entry requirements:

1) Future Pathways:  If you have been selected for Future Pathways you would already have had a letter from Mr Whitaker and so you should pick Future Pathways for your choice in both A and B (with no reserves needed in A and B) and then you will only need to choose option block C.

Please do not pick Future Pathways (first or reserve) if you have not been selected.

2) Single Sciences entry requirement:

End of Year 11 Target Grade (national outcome grade) must be 5 or higher in Science

Students must currently be in or above their current year 8 flightpath for Science

3) Computer Science entry requirement:

End of Year 11 Target Grade (national outcome grade) must be 5 or higher in Science and Maths.
