KS4 Options

At Key Stage 4 students have a variety of guided curriculum choices, known as ‘Pathways’, allowing them to take GCSE subjects or equivalent qualifications. These allow students to select a range of outcomes that include both English Baccalaureate and some vocational qualifications. For ease of reference, these are colour coded Purple and Yellow. We strongly believe each pathway offers equal opportunity and merit. Each has been designed to lead to further higher levels of qualification post 16. The information booklet below provides information on the subject, examination boards and qualifications for 2019-2020.

It discusses the structure of the education system, the nature of the Arnewood pathways and gives suggestions to parents of what they can do to support their child’s option choices.
