Plympton Academy


Years 9 Options - November 2022

At Plympton Academy all students follow a similar programme in Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9.  From the beginning of Year 10 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 9, and their parents, as they prepare to move onto their Year 10 to 11 Learning Journey.





Year 9 will be given a copy of the Option Process form in tutor time after the Look to the Future Fair, and your tutor will support students through the process. These can also be downloaded using the link below if they mislaid it. If you need any further support with the completion of this form, please contact Mrs Arkell at These forms are required to be given back to their tutor, or emailed to the above address by Friday 6th January 2023 in preparation for the options interview at the Parent's Evening on 19th January 2023.
