Key Stage 4 Options

During Year 9 our students, together with guidance from home and school, make their choices about their Key Stage 4 courses. The Key Stage 4 Options Booklet provides an overview of the different course students can select depending on their pathway. For futher information about the options process please contact our Deputy Headteacher (Curriculum), Ms Duncan by telephoning the school or via e-mail: j.duncan@olcc.lancs.sch.uk

Key Stage 4 is a crucial part of your secondary education, and we have thought hard about what to include in the curriculum and about how we can best offer different choices to cater for the wide range of aspirations of our students. Several things work together to influence what choices and pathways we can offer you. Here are some of them:

  • The National Curriculum – features that the Government says we have to include
  • Student numbers
  • Your achievements to date, and your hopes for the future
  • Student needs
  • Student ability level
  • This year you will find a new curriculum on offer to our students
