Year 8 Options

At The Long Eaton School students choose their Key Stage 4 options in Year 8 and begin their studies in Year 9.  This will be our fourth year group to begin Key Stage 4 in Year 9, and we are seeing clear evidence that the extra time available in a three year programme of study is enabling us to prepare students more effectively for these challenging courses.

We know how difficult it can be for students to make such important choices so we offer comprehensive and impartial careers advice to all students. You can gain more information about each of the Key Stage 4 subjects that we offer by watching the videos below.  

If you have any questions about the Options process, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any of these issues further.
