KS5 Options

At William Howard School we understand the importance of supporting students through the choices that will determine their journey through the next stage of their school experience and beyond. The option process has been designed to provide the structure, advice and guidance needed to make informed decisions about the qualifications that will be studied. We advise students to maintain a broad and balanced choice of subjects to ensure that future pathways are kept open and choices are well informed to prepare for the next stage of education, employment or training.
