Our Pathways programme for the current Year 8 is changing. Although the Pathways process will be much the same as in previous years, it will not start until towards the end of Year 9 after Easter in 2024. Year 8 have had a further assembly detailing how the Pathways process will look for them and why the changes have been necessary.  You can see the slides from the assembly by clicking on the logo below:

Below is a copy of the letter that was sent to parents/carers following the Assembly:
