Year 8 Pathways - Important Information and Dates!

This term our Year 8 students will be starting the Pathways process to select their options for key stage 4. This is an exciting time for the students and we would like to invite all our parents to two important events that will provide the information required to support your son/daughter through the process.

Wednesday 3rd February: Year 8 Pathways Information Talk & Marketplace 4.30-6.30pm

We will be holding an information talk in the main hall at 5pm to explain the Pathways Process in detail. Before and after the talk you have the chance to speak with subject staff at our 'Pathways Options Marketplace' where you will receive information regarding all the options for GCSE. Options forms will be handed out at this event.

Thursday 4th February: Year 8 Parents Evening 4.30-7.30pm

Year 8 Parents Evening will take place on the 4th February giving you the opportunity to speak with your child's form tutor and subject teachers regarding their progress. As part of your parental meetings with staff you will be able to discuss your child's suitability to study the subject at GCSE.

For more information, please look under our Parents tab and select Pathways.
