What Happens Next?

At North Chadderton School, we know that education offers empowerment and enables our students to access the widest range of choices for the future. When organising our pathways, we use our knowledge and experience of our curriculum offer and consider each student individually to select the most appropriate pathway, so that each one can make the most of the talents they possess and study the right qualifications to access the widest, and most aspirational range of courses and careers in the future.


Students/parents/carers will be sent an online link via Microsoft Forms on 15th February 2024 and the form via the online link must be submitted by Friday 1st March 2024. 

The Pathways to Success choices will feed into construction of the timetable for September 2024 and we will use the subject chosen to produce the timetable. Where there is not enough demand for a subject, the course will not run and therefore it will be necessary to make alternative choices.   

Our pathways are the next step in the journey our students make towards becoming work and life ready, and so we are aware that many people may need some advice and guidance regarding future study, training and careers. Giving such advice is a specialist job and because of this, we have a dedicated Careers Advisor in school - Mr Azad, who will gladly see anyone who needs impartial advice. 

If there is ANYTHING that you do not understand at any stage, then please speak to Mr Bateman, Miss Crawford, or Mrs Cunningham, and for careers and future study advice, speak to Mr Azad or Ms Dalloway, our in-house careers team.
