Welcome to our virtual Year 9 Options Event! We hope the information provided will be useful for Year 9 students and their parents when making the important decision for Key Stage 4 Options. 

Below is a options  presentation from Miss Duncan, our Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Curriculum, which talks you through the options process. There are also some great video clips and links to help you consider and choose your options  with careers information. 

Attached as a PDF at the bottom is our Curriculum and Options Booklet which has more guidance and advice along with a detailed content of what each course offers. 

Once you have watched and read everything please complete the online options form - this is also on our website https://www.olcc.lancs.sch.uk/form/?pid=7&form=84 The deadline for completion is Monday 22nd March.
