Year 9 Option Choices

Coronavirus Closure

Following on from the updated Government directive on school opening The Cedars Academy is now closed to all but children of key workers who have registered for a place.

Pathway One (EBacc) – These pupils have been selected based on their strong potential in modern foreign languages and have been guided towards an English Baccalaureate curriculum. This will include either French or Spanish and either History or Geography, as well as other options that pupils are free to select from the other two option columns.

Pathway 2 (Progress 8) – Pupils are guided towards ‘high-value’ GCSE options including History, Geography, French and Computer Science, but are then free to select two other options from the final two columns.

Pathway 3 (Vocational) – This option is offering a small number of pupils an alternative pathway, including more support with literacy and numeracy and option subjects more closely linked to their future career.
