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 (2022)
The process whereby students select the subjects they would like to study at KS4 begins after Christmas in Year 8. Students have received a copy of the 13-16 Curriculum booklet which provides information about all of the GCSE and Vocational courses being offered, as well as details of the pathway process itself.
Further information in the form of a narrated PowerPoint presentation can also be found in the links below. This presentation describes the pathway process, how you can access the support which is on offer to you, and a timeline of the key dates in the process.
