Welcome to Lady Lumley's School
In the sixth form you can study subjects you already know from Years 10 and 11 but there are also new subjects such as sociology, psychology and travel and tourism. You are going to be spending a lot of time studying your choices at sixth form so pick ones you enjoy and will be good at. In some cases, subject choice will be influenced by the entry requirements for a future career. Some careers absolutely require certain A levels (e.g. chemistry for medicine) whereas others are much more flexible. For instance, there are no essential A levels for studying law at university; all that is needed is a well-rounded education including success in facilitating subjects. The teachers at Lady Lumley’s can advise you on A level choice and you can (and should) look at the UCAS information on possible degree courses to see if this should influence your choices post-16.
Deciding where to study is almost as important as deciding what to study. The quality of the teaching you will receive is the most important factor closely followed by the support you will get. You may feel that a college atmosphere may suit you best, but you need to consider the level of support the college can give compared to a school. Lady Lumley’s staff know that, despite the non-uniform and the outward maturity, Year 12 students still need support and guidance and benefit from the close relationships between staff and students. The teachers also know the educational journey Year 12 students have taken for the past 5 years and can build on this in their lessons. We have well-qualified subject specialists teaching every subject and we monitor the quality of your learning throughout your time here. We do a really good job of making sure students get the grades they deserve and we have a fantastic retention rate, meaning we work hard to keep students on the full two year A level course.
