Please watch the three videos below which explain the Pathways (Options) structure at The Cooper School and the process for Year 8 students selecting their Options. Further down the page you will find subject documents produced by each Curriculum Department to explain the courses on offer in more detail. Please remember that the deadline for choosing Options is 12th March 2021. The form that students will need to complete to notify us of their choices will be sent to them by email on 4th March (after the Virtual Taster Day on 25th February and Parents' Evening on 3rd March)
