We want you to be as well informed as possible when choosing your options for GCSE. To help you make your decisions, we are happy to present course resources and information, as well personal videos from Guiseley School staff who will talk through the expectations and challenges that you can expect with the courses on offer. Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact your teachers directly for further advice, or email [email protected] and we will make sure that your query reaches the right person. 

KS4 Options 

All pupils are automatically entered for English Language, English Literature, Maths and Science; either Combined or Triple. Pupils will still have Core PE lessons and will study PSHE through form tutor time, assemblies and as threads through the curriculum.

All pupils can choose three options. One option from block A, a second from block B, and the third from block C.

We strongly recommend pupils choose both a Humanities subject and a Modern Foreign Language option to fulfil the English Baccalaureate requirements. N.B the language must be one your child has been studying this year.  

One choice from:

  • History
  • Geography
  • German
  • French
  • Spanish

One choice from:

  • Art
  • Product Design
  • WJEC Hospitality & Catering
  • OCR National in Sport
  • Drama
  • Spanish
  • History
  • OCR National Creative Media
  • OCR National Enterprise & Marketing
  • Digital Photography
  • Music
  • Religious Studies
  • Geography
  • Computer Science

We also ask pupils to choose a Reserve subject from each block.

N.B. Where possible we will aim to meet the pupil’s first three choices and will contact you if we need to use a reserve choice.
