Change Hurst Community College Yr9 Option Format

This petition had 242 supporters

Situated in Tadley, South East England, Yr9s at the Hurst Community College have been told today they are forced to take a language (French, German, Spanish) if in top set and Geography or History for anyone; this has caused great distress among several students. This leaves students with only 2 choices to make, 1 if an additional Science is taken which is to be the case with 1/4 of students. How can 1/2 choice(s) be good for a pupil in the long run, especially if they are not sure what they want to pursue in the future? The reason for this is that it is considered highly valued for when going to Uni, despite the fact at least 1/3 of students in top sets have stated they won't be attending Uni. This can be changed as it is not compulsory to take this route, it's only considered beneficial.
