Year 9 Pathways
At West Hill all students take compulsory courses in English, Maths, Science, RE, PSHE and Games & Wellbeing. Students then choose three optional subjects from our wide-range of subjects. These choices are open to all students.
Students are encouraged to be ambitious and consider their future Career pathways when making these choices. Students who wish to follow a more academic curriculum should consider the EBacc pathway. This pathway consists of the compulsory courses plus a Humanities subject (Geography or History) and a Modern Foreign Language (German or Spanish). Students following this pathway would then have one further option to choose.
More information can be found in our Pathways booklet and by viewing our Choices Week presentations.
The Pathways Booklet 2024 will appear here soon! Please keep checking back.
