Pathways

*The Malling School is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

At The Malling School Sixth Form there are three main pathways for students to choose. Two of these are at Level 3 and 1 at level 1-2.

Level 2 Pathway at The Malling School

Our level 2 pathway at The Malling School is a bespoke pathway based on the needs of the individual student. Mrs Cable who leads this pathway works with both the students and parent throughout the course.

All students on the level 2 pathway will be students who did not get the GCSE grades required to study at level 3. They shall take either their English and Maths GCSE re-sits or Functional skills test, depending on their original GCSE grade and shall take courses that prepare them for their next steps, whether this is further study at college, a supported internship or employment.
