Year 9

Students in Year 9 start their GCSE courses. In addition to their core subjects, in 2017-18 students had four options to choose from. They were guided onto one of four pathways in accordance with their levels of achievement and target bands.  This is a change from last year, when students had more of a 'free choice'.
