We were scheduled to hold our Pathways Evening for Year 9 students on Thursday 28th January. Unfortunately, owing to Covid restrictions, it is no longer possible to host the evening we had planned.

However, we know how important this evening is in helping our students, their parents and carers, to understand the options process.

On this page, you will find videos and course information on every subject we offer for study. This will give you and your child an opportunity to see what each subject entails, consider which are of interest to them and help you support them in making an informed choice.

Below is a video by Mrs Stamford, deputy headteacher at Headlands School, about the Options process and how to make the best decision about the right choices for you.

If you have any questions after watching the videos, please click here and a member of staff will get back to you.

Year 9 students will receive an Options Form to fill in with their choices, or a copy can be downloaded by clicking here.
