Key Stage 4 Options

The videos on this page are intended to complement the information in the Options Booklet which students in Year 8 have been given. In more normal times we would have preferred to have parents and students come in and have the chance to discuss subjects and potential choices with Heads of Department. Given the current circumstances, that is not possible, but we hope that these videos will give you an insight into the various Key Stage 4 courses on offer at Woodham Academy and assist you in making your Key Stage 4 Options Choices.

In order to make your choices you will need to log in to SIMS Options Online. Instructions on how to do this are contained in your options booklet and in the link below.

You must have selected and saved your options choices in SIMS Options Online by 14th April 2021.
