GCSE Selection

Changes to the Lancing Week were implemented in 2016 to optimise the effectiveness of the school day at Lancing and to make the best of the teaching and learning opportunities of our pupils.

In 2017, the programme was further enhanced with additional teaching time dedicated to English and Mathematics.

 Studying

In the Third Form, all pupils follow a tailored programme of study which is aimed at ensuring they can develop their study skills, explore their interests, all whilst gaining a core understanding in all their subjects, ready to have informed discussions about GCSE choices at the beginning of the Summer Term.

In the Fourth Form all pupils continue to study the core subjects of English and English Literature, Mathematics, Dual Award Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics can be taken as three separate GCSEs as an option) and Religious Studies, which is taken as a Short Course GCSE at the end of the Fourth Form.

In addition, pupils take four optional subjects, one of which must be a Language (French, Spanish, German or Latin), and follow a course of PE and PSHE.
