Year 9 Options

The options process is the first time in most student’s school careers when they are faced with significant choices to make. The choices that they make will not only affect what they study for the next two years but also open doors to employment and further study.

At The Whitby High School we are committed to every student achieving their potential and it is therefore vital that they make informed and sensible option choices.


Every child is unique, so at The Whitby High School we offer a curriculum that is personalised to meet the needs of all our young people. Being a large school we are able to offer an exceptional range of subject choices across four Learning Pathways. Students will be advised as to which Pathway will be most suitable for them to follow so that they can truly achieve their potential.

Please take some time to look through these option booklets to enable you to gain an appreciation of the subjects on offer.
