GCSE Options and Careers Information

Welcome to our GCSE Options and Careers Information page. Under normal circumstances we would take this opportinuty to meet with parents and students in school, however this year we have provided the information online. We hope that this video and GCSE Options Booklet will provide you with clear and helpful information about the options process and subject choices for those students entering L5 (Year 10) in September 2021. 

To watch our video presentations from Mrs Chapman, Miss Riley, Mr Lee and Mr Maddox on GCSE options please click onto the video below. 

Derby High School is able to offer a wide and varied range of subjects. All students should seek advice on subject balance and ask lots of questions before making their final decision. The following GCSE Options Booklet provides an outline of the subjects students must study (the core curriculum) and the subjects they can choose to study (key curriculum options). 

Once students have decided on their options, please complete the GCSE Options Request Form. The form can be downloaded as a PDF by clicking the image below, alternatively a word version is available by clicking here.The form needs to be returned to Mr Maddox, email address amaddox@derbyhigh.derby.sch.uk. Thank you.
