Applications for Year 9

Guidance for parents & students

Pick Your Learning Package

Applying for QEStudio might seem a bit confusing at first – but that’s because we’re trying to be as flexible as possible in offering students personalised options.

So these graphics hopefully help to show how you should think of options as creating your personal ‘Learning Package.’

Your Learning Package  starts with a ‘Specialist Pathway’ that will take-up a whole day a week of your timetable in an area such as Sports or Engineering etc.

Use the ‘Pathways’ links above for more information on your choices.

But your  Learning Package also includes ‘traditional’ qualifications, such as GCSEs, depending on what suits you.

See the links at the bottom of this page for details of your ‘core’ and ‘optional’ subjects.

We’ll give students lots of support along the way so you make the best choices for you!

But final applications must be submitted by Friday, 15 December 2017.
