  • Students will be asked to record first and second choices from option blocks 1, 2 and 3.

  • Students must consider this carefully as there is no guarantee that we can give everyone their first choice.

  • Option blocks are determined based on student feedback and this changes yearly. Below is an example of the option block choices we have offered previously. All students must choose at least one of: History, Geography or French.
