At Accrington Academy we take pride in our curriculum, in the flexibility it affords and the opportunities it gives to our students. The broad and balanced curriculum we provide is crucial to the development of well-rounded learners who have the opportunity to progress into Sixth Form and beyond.
Guided Choices Options take place in Year 9. We will guide your child onto a pathway based on their performance at primary school and at Accrington Academy at Key Stage 3. We use all the information we possess to create what we believe is the right pathway for your child’s ability. Your child will be guided to the choices which will take them through KS4 and beyond, hopefully into our highly successful Sixth Form provision.
The subject pages of the website contain essential information for you and your child. You will need time to read it carefully and we cannot emphasise strongly enough that your child should not make hasty decisions and should seek the advice of as many adults as possible including yourself, teachers, tutors and their Director of College. Above all ensure the choices made are in your child’s best interest and not because of who the teacher is or what their friends are doing.
This is an exciting time for your child, it is the beginning of a journey and the time for looking towards a bright future starts now.
