Yr8 into Yr9 Guided Pathway Information Evening Letter


Yr8 into Yr9 Guided Pathway Information Evening

This is part of our programme of support, information and guidance for Year 8 students. This will take place on the 28 January 2020 starting at 5.30pm

A key part of our curriculum is the opportunity for students to start the deeper study of some subjects as they move into Year 9. Some of these subjects can be certified at the end of Year 10, and some at the end of Year 11. One of the advantages of this model is that it enables students to spread out the examination load; it also enables the study of qualification based subjects to be broader and more flexible.

There will be two formal presentation describing the Guided Pathway process, starting at 5.45 pm & 6.45pm (parents only need to attend one presentation). You and your child will have the opportunity to meet with staff from each subject area to access information and guidance on the different courses available both before and after each formal presentation. Careers advisors and representatives from post 16 providers will also be present during the evening.

*Please note - the deadline for completion and submission of Guided Pathway choices forms is 31 January 2020*
