Year 9 Option Choices

Year 9 Options

Dear Parents and Carers,


Re: Year 9 Options Process


Students in Year 9 will be able to begin making their GCSE curriculum choices from Monday, February 1st, 2021. The window to complete this process will close on Sunday, February 21st, 2021.


Please follow this step-by-step guide to support your child in making their curriculum choices:


  1. Pupils should check their school email account and look for an invitation from Leytonstone School inviting them to create a SIMS Student account.


  1. Follow the link in the email invitation to register an account.


  1. Once a user account is created, students must visit this website: to select their curriculum choices.


A visual guide to selecting options via the SIMS portal is available here:


If at any point in this process there are technical problems, or you haven’t received the invitation to create a SIMS Student account, please contact our dedicated support team:


Understandably, there may still be some questions you or your child has about their GCSE curriculum choices. We have created a form for you to submit any outstanding questions about Year 9 curriculum choices.


This form will be open from Feb 1 – Feb 7, 2021, and will then be compiled into a FAQ section available for all via our website.


Please ask your questions here:
