Year 8 GCSE 14-19 Guided Pathways

Dear Parents and Carers

As we continue to review our practice and evolve with the emerging needs of a future workforce, I am writing to advise that we are currently redesigning our curriculum model for 2020-21. We wish to ensure this is fit for purpose for our students. With this in mind we will be delaying our Y8 Guided Pathways process and therefore, the evening published on the 6th February 2020 is now cancelled.

We will advise, in good time, regarding our launch of our new curriculum, which we will communicate to you. Thank you, as always for your support.

Cordelia Macmillan, Assistant Principal Curriculum.

The 14-19 Guided Pathway process for Year 8 is a significant point in the life of our students where they will select the preferences they wish to study at Key Stage 4. These subjects will be the qualifications that will lead them into further education and future careers. At The Hastings Academy we recognise that these selections are very important and we will be supporting students to make preferences that are both ambitious and achievable as well as enabling students to develop the skills and attributes needed for a successful future career.
