Year 8 Pathways

Information about this process is shared in the summer term for Year 8 students.

The Year 8 into 9 pathways model gives students an opportunity to study their chosen foundation courses in greater depth whilst retaining a broad overall curriculum.

  4. Year 8 Pathways are submitted via a google form, which will be linked here when available. (Access to this form requires the student to be logged on to the school VLE, Pathway submission should be done by Year 8 students).

As far as possible we aim to give students their first three choices. Year 8 students should submit the online Pathways form in good time to avoid disappointment.
