Preferences & Pathways

Welcome from Mrs Wagg, Deputy Headteacher

In February, parents/carers will receive a letter detailing the preference choices your child needs to make. We have recorded a series of subject information videos to support these decisions and have also included the subject information sheets that are also shared with the students on Firefly.
