Year 8 Options Evening

The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust will be holding its annual Year 8 Options Day on Tuesday 28th February, 2023.   

The next few months are an important time in your child’s education. Students will be completing Year 8 and need to make decisions about their Key Stage 4 education; looking closely at possible courses and pathways to follow.  We have therefore been running a series of special assemblies to help students as they consider suitable option choices.  To support this process, a range of additional activities will take place during Options Day on Tuesday 28th February, when the College is in session. This will include a Business Speed Event in which many professionals from the world of work will visit the College to talk about career pathways. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions so they can be well equipped to make the right choices for them.   

You and your child are invited to attend an information evening on Tuesday 28th February, to take place at Hewens College from 5:30pm until 7:30pm. This includes a formal talk which will provide you with a clear insight as to how Key Stage 4 study is organised and structured.  You will have the opportunity to speak to staff about the range of courses available and the process of choosing options. Displays for each subject area will be available and provide all the relevant information needed for each individual student to make an informed decision about their future.  

In light of the above, please note that on Tuesday 28th February, Year 8 students will be dismissed from Hewens College at 2:30pm.  All other groups will finish College at the usual time of 4:00pm.  Lessons will resume at the normal time at 8:45am on Wednesday 1st March

Please feel free to view the Key Stage 4 Curriculum and the Options Booklet below.


Once you have carefully considered your options and made a decision about which subjects you wish to study at Key Stage 4, you should complete the options grid provided at the end of this document. The completed grid should then be returned electronically via the Options Form button below by no later than Friday 3th March, 2023.
