Year 9 Options Guide

Year 9 marks a very important stage in your life as you begin to start thinking about what you would like to do in the future. We have prepared some further film ? resources (BELOW) that will support you in making the right choices to benefit you.

You should start to research careers which appeal to you most and think about the strengths, skills and personal qualities you feel that you have. It is important that you are honest and realistic in your judgement. You may not know yet what you want to do in the future, so it is important to keep a broad and balanced combination of subjects.
