Year 9 Guided Choices

The structure of Key Stage 4 has been designed to ensure that every student will follow a broad and balanced curriculum suited to his or her individual needs.  We all have different strengths and weaknesses, and for some students a vocational course will allow a greater chance of success in Level 2 courses than a GCSE course, and will also be more enjoyable to study.  

To advise you on which pathway to follow, we will review your attainment in Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 across your core subjects.  We want every student to finish Year 11 with a complete set of Level 2 qualifications that will take them on to their next stage, whether that is employment, training or Post 16 study.  All of our Key Stage 4 Level 2 qualifications can lead to Key Stage 5 Level 3 further education courses.

It is not always possible to accommodate all selections. We have to maintain reasonable class sizes and also try to work around “clashes”.  As a result we ask you to indicate other courses you might consider. For some students it may be necessary to use these courses and so they must be subjects in which you have an interest and ability.
