Year 9 Courses

This page provides access to information about the courses offered at Heathfield High School. These courses show the pattern of subjects that you must choose at each year level.


GeneralThis course is suitable for all Year 9 students.


Notes

  • If students wish to undertake both language and music they must initially select ONE of these. This should be the one that is the highest preference.
    An appointment with a Middle Years subject advisor MUST be made so that possible options can be explored.
    Bookings can be made for Monday 14th August by contacting reception on 81399300.
    Please note there is no guarantee that the timetable will be able to accommodate both full year subjects.
  • Life Skills For Lads is for male students only, and the subject For Girls Only is for female students.
  • Information Technology is taught across the curriculum through a range of subjects.
  • Music students undertake specialist instrumental music or vocal instruction of thirty minutes each week, on a withdrawal basis during normal school hours.
  • Whilst every effort is made to place students in the subjects of their first choice, some combinations may not be possible due to a number of factors. These include the number of students choosing particular subjects, and timetable and staffing constraints. For this reason, students will be asked to nominate reserve subjects when choosing their course. Students should select their choice and reserve subjects in order of preference. If it is not possible for a student to do one or more of the choice subjects they have chosen, one or more of their reserve subjects will be substituted for their lowest preference choice(s).
