Pathways

The Pathways programme at the Macclesfield Academy aims to provide individualised tracking of subjects and recommend routes for students to follow during Years 9, 10 & 11. This year all students were all allocated a Pathways advisor who could provide the personalised advice and guidance that will help students make the right choices now, to ensure that they have the best options when they leave the Academy.
Our Pathways Programme is based on three key principles: to deliver excellence for all our students from the most able, to those who need extra support in Year 9 to ensure they are ready to take GCSE courses in Year 10; to provide flexibility for students to progress to exam courses at higher levels at the rate which is right for them and to ensure breadth of provision, so that all of our students can follow the widest possible range of academic and technical courses.
