Introduction

The Telford Langley School is committed to providing for all of its young people a broad, balanced and personalised education.  At Key Stage Three, Years 7-9, the emphasis is upon providing students with a varied diet of studies across a wide range of subjects.  Personalisation is achieved through high quality teaching.

At age 14, students are given the opportunity to choose some of their courses for Years 10 and 11, in order to pursue particular interests or strengths. At this ‘Options’ stage, students choose from the subjects on offer, following specific ‘pathways’.
