Year 9 Pathways


Welcome to the Year 9 Pathways information page.  When deciding on which subjects to take you should gather information from different sources and do some research to see how your choices at GCSE can help you on to different career paths.  Below you can find an introduction video to the process, an information booklet and subject presentations.  At the end of each presentation is a contact name should you require any further information.  Alternatively you can email and your enquiry will be directed to the most appropriate person.  You may find the information at BBC Bitesize helpful and don't forget to speak to Mr Overton, our Careers Adviser, too.
