Course Choice

**We are hoping the return to school from 22nd February for a few students goes well across the country and we will then be allowed to welcome more pupils back into school on the 15th of March.  

If this is the case, we will delay the submission deadline until just after that point to enable students to be able to talk to their teachers.  

Please do not worry about meeting previously published deadlines in the documents below for submitting choices. We will publish updated deadlines after next major government announcement on 2nd March.**
