The Programme of Optional Areas of Study 

At St Martin’s College our aim is to offer as many choices available to our students and have as broad an array as possible. While we allow students to choose three option subjects freely, guidance is given so that subjects are chosen with a view to maximising access to future career choices.  In order to ensure such access, one of these subjects must either be Biology or Physics.

Whilst we will do our utmost to take on board all choices, as always, final decisions will be subject to subscription, timetabling and class-size considerations.

Kindly note the following guidelines: 

1. There are three options to be chosen, each with a provision of four lessons per week;

2. One of these options must be either Biology or Physics;

3. Students may then choose two further option subjects from the list of subjects below:
Accounting, Art, Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Economics, Environmental Studies/Geography(according to subscription), Graphical Communication, History, Physical Education, Physics, Health & Social Care, Media Literacy or an international language (French/German/Italian/Spanish);

4.  The international language, chosen from French, Italian, German or Spanish in the list above is in addition to the languages that students have already been taking since Level 7 and are offered subject to subscription;

5.  Students with specific learning needs and attending the Alternative Learning Programme (ALP) are given special, personalised programme combinations and ad hoc specific cases are considered, subject to timetable possibilities.
