Learning Pathways 14+

Introduction

In year 10 you will see your situation greatly changing – until now you have studied a wide range of subjects, but before long you will have the opportunity of studying some of those subjects whilst dropping others. There will also be an opportunity of taking on new subjects.

But before making your choice you need to collect a great deal of information and discuss with a number of people. This booklet should help you make the correct choice.

Make the best of it remembering that your decisions could affect your examination results at the end of Year 11 and your future after your days at school.

You will be working through material in your pastoral lessons which will help you get to know yourself.

We hope that Learning Pathways 14+  will assist you to make good choices.  Soon there will be a parents evening, where you will be invited to discuss your future with members of staff.
