Pathways Selection at Massey High School

The curriculum offered for students at Massey High School is designed to accommodate the differing aspirations and needs of students at all levels.  Students entering secondary education do so with differing backgrounds of experience and often very different levels of achievement, so it is not appropriate that they all be set the same objective. 

In order to make a reasonable decision you need the right information.  You should check:

  • the particular qualifications required for the career(s) you have thought about.
  • how these qualifications relate to school qualifications.
  • the subjects that you need now for the training and education required later.
  • what other institutions provide training for the career as well as the local polytechnic or university.

If you are unsure, talk to your Dean or see a Careers Advisor in room P9 to confirm information about courses and subjects required.
