KS4 Guided Choices

  • Art_group

LPGS now offers students more choice of subjects than they had in the past. We know they are likely to do better in subjects they enjoy. We are also providing clear guidance to students about their chances of getting Grade C and above in the subjects they might like to take.

You may have heard of the government’s measure of GCSE success, called the English Baccalaureate. It will be achieved by those students who gain a C and above in the combination of English, Mathematics, Science, History or Geography, and a language. This combination is available to all students. There is some evidence that it could affect offers of university places in the future.

We are offering a number of courses in vocational and work related learning. These are GCSE qualifications in which a larger proportion of the assessment is by continuous assessment alongside final exams. Tutors and your Head of Year will be able to explain more about these qualifications.

 

IMPORTANT DATES IN 2017

In order to support the decision making process we will be running a series of events over the course of the year. We would also encourage you to open a conversation with your daughter regarding the process and the choices that she is looking to make as they will have an impact on her studies over the next two years.
