The Pathways Programme

Consider a huge power station to a minute colourful flame… a very young fresh bud to the very old (cross breeding crops and livestock)… or the magnificent complex organic molecular structures to the beautiful, simple snow flake crystals…

From the start of Key Stage 4, pupils progress along their own Pathways. All study for qualifications in the core subjects, Maths, Science, English, PE and PSHE. But alongside these, the pupils they study are chosen by them.

Currently, our pupils have chosen to study for qualifications from the following list of subjects:

  • Creative Media
  • Art
  • Design Technology
  • Food Technology
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • History
  • Performing Arts (Dance, Music and Drama)
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Computing
  • Employability and Life Skills
  • Business and Enterprise
  • Horticulture
  • Health and Social Care
  • Creative Woodwork (studied at specialist off-site provision)
  • Building Skills (studied at specialist off-site provision).

Each year, we aim to put on the courses that will best meet each pupils’ interests, talents and needs.
