Key Stage Choices Information
THE YEAR 9 OPTIONS PROCESS
The curriculum offer
The curriculum we offer at Lady Lumley’s will provide the students with all they need in order to follow any career they wish in the future. The curriculum offer here is built upon the students’ choices and the timetable is decided after the students make their choices, not before. This gives every student the best chance to choose the subjects they want to study and the subjects they may need for their future career aspirations.
The options process
The Year 9 options process will help students and their families make informed decisions about the subjects they wish to take in the future. Choosing which subjects to study in Years 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4) is probably the most important decision students have yet had to make. The subjects chosen could influence the range of courses the student can take later in life and could possibly affect future careers. Having said that, the core of subjects offered at Lady Lumley’s School ensures that every student has a broad and balanced education through to the end of Year 11. The options process allows students (and their parents/carers) to choose additional subjects that complement the core offer and allow the student to develop his or her knowledge and skills in particular areas.
