Students have the opportunity to choose their own individual learning pathway based around their specific skills and interests. For the majority of students their studies will be recognised through GCSEs and for some, vocational qualifications.
All students will continue to study a core curriculum including:
- English Language
- English Literature
- Science (combined or separate)
- Religious & Moral Education
Students are assessed at regular intervals over the course of their KS4 studies and expected performance for the end of Year 11 is measured against challenging aspirational targets. Students will also complete a Work Placement during Year 10 and continue to have access to a wide range of extension and enrichment activities.
Year 8 Pathway Process (2021)
Due to the current college shutdown this year we are supporting students to complete the pathway process online. Students have received a copy of the 13-16 Curriculum booklet which provides details of the pathway process and information about each of the courses being offered. We have also produced a narrated PowerPoint presentation which takes you through the pathway process and details the support which is on offer to you and your child. A timeline of the key dates in the process are also explained. Links to both the booklet and presentation are below:
