Course Choice Process 2017/2018

The formal options process starts with the issue of the Pathways booklet to pupils.  However, much work has been done prior to this.  Pupils will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the Pathway Options Descriptor Booklet from 6th February, 2017.  Each pupil also has the opportunity to discuss his or her options with a counsellor, often a member of the House Head team.


The school attaches great importance to this individual interviewing of pupils, and pupils are encouraged to prepare fully for the interview.


Once the counselling is complete, a pupil’s option will be confirmed either by the issue of a school timetable or leaver confirmation letter.


In addition, there will be opportunities to discuss courses with subject specialists.  Faculties hold an information fortnight week beginning 20th February, 2017.   Any learner embarking on a “new” subject will be able to meet with the appropriate Curriculum Leader.
