Welcome to the SNHS Options Evening 2021 Online Event

This page is dedicated to helping you make your choices about what subjects you would like to take for your GCSEs. In the sections below you will find videos for each subject area that will give you information about each course and what you will study over the two years.

We hope you will find all the information you require in these videos. However, should you need any further guidance, please contact the relevant Head of Department.

An Introduction to the Options Process from the Principal and Vice Principal


These are compulsory

All students are required to take GCSEs in Mathematics, English Language and Literature and Science.

Further to these core subjects all students will follow curriculum in Core PE and Philosophy, Morals and Ethics. However, students will not be examined in these subjects and therefore will not receive a certificate.

Choose at least one

All students are required to take a GCSE in either Geography or History. You can take both of these subjects, if you wish.

These subjects make up the remainder of your 4 options

When making your choices here, please refer to the information in the booklet that has been both emailed and posted to you.

Here is what to do next

On Friday 5th March, each student will receive an email which includes a personal link, allowing them access to make their choices through our online system, and an attachment, providing full guidance on this process.

Alternatively, you can watch the video here, which will talk you through the process. This will be available from Friday 5th March.

If you need any additional guidance then please see Mrs Hornsby from Monday 8th. If you need urgent assistance, please email options@snhs.kirklees.sch.uk.
