progression

All students follow a similar pattern in Years 7, 8 and 9 with opportunities for early experience of GCSE courses and transition support for a small group in Year 7.

 

During Year 9, staff, parents and students are engaged in agreeing the best course of study to be followed in Years 10 and 11. A booklet containing full information about the courses available in Year 10 and Year 11 is provided as a part of the 'Choices' programme.

 

Careers education operates throughout a student's secondary school life but advice from the careers staff is particularly important at this time.
