Year 9 Parents - Options and Induction
If you 're joining Year 10 in August 2021, our short options video above will guide you through the options process and help you to make the right options choices.
Options can be a minefield for parents, too, so this video may be useful to help them support their son/ daughter through the options process.
At Ashby School, it is important that prospective students and their parents feel happy and well-informed about the choices they are making.
All Year 9 students and parents are usually invited to an open evening in September (a year before they are due to start in Year 10) where they are given an introduction to the standards and opportunities they can expect at Ashby. As this was not possible in 2020, we have produced two options videos - one for students and one for parents.
Any questions about options should be directed to Phil Newman, Options and Timetables Manager at email@example.com
The closing date for the submission of options choices is Monday 22 February 2021.
The options booklet for 2021 is out now. Click on the options booklet image below for a full guide to options for 2021:

Following our open evening, one parent said: 'We attended your open evening and would like to pass on our thanks to the articulate, helpful and knowledgeable students who gave up their time to discuss your lovely school! They were an absolute credit.
"My son and I will be trying our best to get him a place at Ashby School in the next academic year."
