Year 9 Pathways
Our Year 9 students are supported throughout the year in making their GCSE choices. All students follow a common core curriculum in each pathway comprising English, Maths, Science and Religious Education. Most students will opt for 3 GCSE subjects and some may be advised to opt for 2 with additional support provided in English and Maths as an alternative. We offer advice and guidance to all students in the understanding that the final choice around options remains that of the student and their parent/carers.
Separate Sciences are offered and students are able to opt to take 2 humanities subjects. Students also have the ability to opt for 2 modern languages.
We encourage students to select option subjects which play to their academic strengths and which support them in ensuring that they can fulfil their potential beyond GCSE. We have a wide range of academic and vocational subjects on offer.
