Key Stage 4 starts here...
Welcome to our Year 9 students, parents and families to our online Year 9 Options Evening. We very much hope that the video resources will provide you with timely and insightful information at this important juncture in every student's journey.
We are passionate about the pathways that we designate to all of our students and we have established a very successful track record in supporting each and every student through KS4 and into their next step beyond.
We firmly believe in the established and broad curriculum and the next steps guidance we offer; we believe in our skilled and committed staff and we believe in the ability of our students as learners.
We have no doubt that the next two years will be an exciting and challenging journey. A journey that starts now.

Please click and scroll through the various videos below in which our teachers and subject leaders introduce you to the various subjects that will form pat of your decision-making in Key Stage 4 and vocational courses on offer at Hayes.
MAKING THE BEST DECISIONS
Our GCSE Curriculum, the timetable that facilitates our curriculum and the Pathways we have designed, allows each student to study a broad and balanced programme to a good depth.
Throughout their time in Years 10 and 11, each student will get access to a range of expertise and advice, which we believe will inform the decision-making of everyone.
In order to further our support for Year 9s, we hope that the videos shown below will give each student, even more access to advice and guidance, enabling both students and parents to become well-informed.
