Plympton Academy


Years 8 Options - November 2020

At Plympton Academy all students follow a similar programme in Year 7 and Year 8.  From the beginning of Year 9 students follow a core curriculum of compulsory subjects, in addition to an extended curriculum of option subjects.

The full range of options changes every year, and is modified to provide the most appropriate pathways for students in the year group. In this section, you will find information for students in Year 8, and their parents, as they prepare to move onto their Year 9 to 11 Learning Journey.





In your stationery packs year 8 will have received a copy of the Option Process form. These are be downloaded using the link below if you have mislaid it. There is also a video on what you are required to do with this form which might help. This can be found on your Year 8 Google Classroom. If you need any support with the completion of this form, please contact Mrs Arkell at These forms are required to be sent back or emailed to the same address by Monday 18th January.




The options form will be send to parents electronically via a Google Form before the 1:1 meeting on the 21st January.
