2023 Year 9 Options

Welcome to LHS Year 9 Options information page. Our options booklet will be available here to view as from Friday 17th February. You will then find a short video for all three core subjects, English, Maths and Science which are compulsory subjects at GCSE, the Humanities options and the block A, B & C options. Each option subject has also provided a link to an information leaflet. These videos will provide an overview for each course available as an option at KS4 from the Subject Lead teacher.


Our Options booklet contains all the information about how to choose your child’s option courses, as well as a parental guide about how to access the selection and submission page on SIMS Options. In order to find out what pathway course your child has been allocated, please see  Synergy where this information will be published on Monday 27th February. Our Options Evening Event will take place on Tuesday 28th February.


Finally, if you have any further questions please see the links at the bottom of the page. Parents are able to submit any questions they may have which will be answered in the F.A.Q. section online. You will also find email addresses for any support or further questions you may have.


Please remember that the deadline to submit option choices is Friday 24th March 2023 midday on SIMS Options


I hope you find this information helpful in supporting your child to make the best decision for their future courses.

Kind regards,


Mrs Summers
