In Year 9 we are definitely starting to look ahead and preparing you for the exams you will be sitting at the end of Year 11.
In fact, in subjects such as English, maths and Science this is just the third year of a five year course. In many subjects, there will be an increased focus on exam skills as well as ensuring you develop a passion and interest in what you are studying.
In February you will start the options process when you are able to choose from a board range of subjects to study. See the PDFs and video presentations below for detail about the options process and subjects that you will not have studied at Key Stage 3.
The Key Stage 4 Options Process
At Katharine Lady Berkeley’s School we are committed to providing the best education we can and supporting every student to fully achieve his or her potential. In order to achieve this, it is important that your child chooses the right courses to study in Years 10 and 11.
