Year 8 Options

Due to the significant changes taking place in the curriculum at GCSE this page will be updated in January 2017 when the new GCSE options at Burnham Grammar School are being publicised.

There will be a Parents Evening for year eight students in February with paperwork for students' choices following this. 

All year eight students at BGS currently select their GCSE options to commence study at the start of year nine. A three year GCSE programme of study allows students greater exposure to the increased demands of the newly reformed GCSE’s graded on the 1-9 scale.

The year eight Parents and Options Evening is on Thursday 23rd March 2017 where parents will receive a presentation about the options process at BGS alongside having an opportunity to discuss their son’s/daughter’s progress with subject staff. The options booklet and preference form will be available to each child at the Parents and Options Evening.
