Year 8 Options

Our Year 8 students are required to make some key decisions regarding their future studies at Jubilee High. This is an incredibly exciting time for both families and students alike, for the first time students have the opportunity to shape their learning journey, tailoring it towards a particular career, aspiration or passion. They may also begin to consider post-16 options, as changes in Government policy insist that all students must stay in education or work-based training until they are 18. However, at this stage we believe it is unnecessary to specialise in specific subject areas and recommend that students keep a broader choice of subjects.


Throughout the options process which will generally start in January and finish at the end of March we work closely with students and their families to ensure that their options are well considered. The process will include both subject assemblies and student interview rounds, with a clear timeline communicated to ensure that everybody is able to consider and submit their choices in a timely manner. During the process an Options evening will take place which will allow parents and students to speak with staff and find out more about the requirements for each subject.


Optional subjects are broadly split into GCSE qualifications and alternative qualifications and when making their options choices students should always consider:

  • The requirements of a balanced curriculum
  • Subjects in which they have a keen interest
  • Subjects in which they have shown aptitude - the most recent report, should give an indication of this, and further discussion with the relevant subject teachers is highly recommended.
  • Entry requirements for specific Further and Higher Education institutions.

A full list of our KS4 Options courses are listed below, however, should students or their families have any queries, support and advice is always available from their tutor, head of year and subject leaders:

I started rowing at Jubilee High in Year 7. I’m now a member of Weybridge RC and have won four competitions so far, but it was Jubilee High that gave me the opportunity to get into rowing.

I'm lucky to attend a school with great facilities. We are able to perform more experiments in the new Science labs. I enjoy the many sports available in within the excellent sports facilities.
