To ensure that no pupil has a door closed to opportunities in their future we
encourage our pupils to follow the EBac route if they are in the pink pathway.

To achieve the EBac, pupils need to have attained a GCSE of at least a
Grade 5 that fits into each of the following subject groups:
The ‘English Baccalaureate’
