While this is a very exciting time for all the year group, it can be difficult and a little overwhelming to make decisions now that have an impact on what you are going to study when you leave West Exe. As your Head of Year, I want to make sure that all of you feel fully supported and informed during the Curriculum choices process. It is important that you can discuss your ideas with those around you: your tutors, your teachers, your parents/carers and your Head of Year. It can also be very useful to talk to students that are currently in Years 9, 10 and 11 and studying the courses that you are interested in.

The Curriculum choices booklet will be distributed after the Easter Holiday.  Please make sure that you read it very carefully as it will have a description of all the courses that are on offer at West Exe School. If you have any questions about which subjects are compulsory, which are optional and which combinations of subjects you can take, please make sure that you ask someone!

Curriculum Choices : financial support

At West Exe we are committed to reducing all barriers to learning, so that every child succeeds. If you are concerned about the financial implications of particular curriculum choices there may be support available depending on your circumstances through the West Exe Bursary. Please contact Imogen O’Callaghan, Head of Year 8 via our admin team: admin@westexe.devon.sch.uk in the first instance if you wish to discuss this further.
