Subject Pathways

Year 9 Subject Pathways 2022

The time has come for our Year 9 students to make decisions about their final choices for their GCSE journey.

Due to the pandemic the usual process was delayed until Year 9 to allow our students the opportunity to experience the full range of specialist subjects.

It is important for all parents to be aware of recent changes made to the Key Stage 4 curriculum, the choices available to students and how these changes align with recent government guidance. You will have received a letter by post and via email with the information for your child’s recommended pathway of study.

(Please advise us if you have not received this information - email: - please include the name of your child within the message)

Year 9 Parents’ Evening will be held on Thursday, 17th March - This evening will give you the opportunity to speak to your child’s teachers to gain a better understanding of the progress your child has been making in the subjects they have been studying since September.

Students will be sent an email (to their school email account) containing a link to a Google Form to confirm their final choices for Key Stage 4 study, this must be completed by Monday, 28th March.

(In the unlikely event that students do not know how to access their school emails, information on how to log in is available on our 'How To' webpage and specifically the 'Google Suite - How to Page')

Whilst we always try to accommodate students' preferences, there will be times where this is not possible and in this instance we will always speak to students and parents to look for the best alternative. 

Final choices will be confirmed via a letter prior to the end of the summer term.
