Our Year 8 into 9 Guided Pathway Information Evening is Tuesday 22nd January 5-6.30pm . This is part of our programme of support, information and guidance for Year 8 students.
The curriculum in operation across schools in the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, has been repeatedly judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted due to its flexibility, engagement and promotion of high quality outcomes for students. A key part of this curriculum is the opportunity for students to study qualifications over three years (Years 9, 10 and 11) rather than the traditional two years (Years 10 and 11); this extra year not only enables students to spread the examination load, it also enables the study of qualification based subjects to be deeper and much broader.
There will be a formal presentation describing the pathway process, starting at 5.30pm. Before the presentation and following this, you and your child will have the opportunity to meet with staff from each subject area to access information and guidance on the different courses available. Careers advisors and representatives from post 16 providers will also be present during the evening.
The deadline for completion and submission of Guided Pathway choices forms is Friday 25th January 2019.
