Year 9 students will now be thinking about potential subject choices as they move into year 10. They will be assigned to one of five pathways; each pathway being tailored to suit the varying academic needs in year 9. This process is different to Options (which many schools still do), where students are given a free choice to pick whatever subject they want to. National research shows that this model is ineffective and does not lead to good outcomes for students, and the primary rationale behind Pathways is to allow every student to leave having maximised their potential.
