Information about Y8 and Y9 Pathways evenings for 2018
Students are required to complete the Pathways process in order to gain places on their chosen courses. Students will choose some option subjects as well as taking a number of compulsory examined courses, such as English, Maths, Science and Citizenship/Religion/Ethics (CRE), as well as non-examined PE lessons.
The current Year 9 will complete their Pathways for Years 10 and 11 as normal.
For the current Year 8, we will be bringing Year 9 into Key Stage 4 alongside Years 10 and 11 in September 2018, so the curriculum is changing to provide a wider range of choices and more time in the subjects that students want to study, in order to give them a better start.
To facilitate this, we would like to bring some of the options choices forward to begin in Year 9. Some subjects will start GCSEs straight away in Year 9, other subjects will offer Foundation courses that prepare students for the full subjects in Years 10/11.
Dates of Pathways evenings:
Year 8 - Monday 22nd January 2018 (6:00pm - 8:00pm)
Year 9 - Tuesday 23rd January 2018 (6:00pm - 8:00pm)
This year, we will be doing all Pathways choices via an online form.
