Students at Haywood Academy choose their pathways in year 8. This is a very important decision; so much preparation goes into the process.

The aim is that students choose a broad selection of courses that they will enjoy and ultimately achieve well. Throughout the process students are supported with discussions from staff and guided into suitable choices.

The stages of the pathways selection process:-

Thursday 24th January Pathways Evening – Year 8

Thursday 8th February Return of pathways preferences forms to Form Tutors.
