As you prepare to enter S3, the final year of your Broad General Education, there is an opportunity to personalise the curriculum studied.  You will continue to study English, Maths and French, together with other core subjects PE, PSE and RME.

In addition, one choice will be made from each of the following curricular areas:

  • Expressive Arts
  • Science
  • Social Subjects
  • Technologies

A ‘free’ choice will then be made to complete the curriculum.

In December an ‘Indication of Choice’ event takes place to enable us to establish uptake of subjects and then create ‘columns’ for final subject choice in January/February.  A sample of the form used can be found in the link below.

The ‘columns’ vary from year to year depending on pupil uptake.  This blog contains information on all available courses and we would encourage you to discuss these with your child prior to both choice events.  Pupils will also have the opportunity to discuss personalisation and choice with their guidance and subject teachers but please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any further queries.

Information about specific curricular areas can be found below:

As well subjects from specific curricular areas, you will also have the opportunity to study a Wider Achievement course throughout the session for 2 periods a week.  The opportunities that will be offered for this are:


S2 to S3 Final Choices 

A presentation to help with this process can be found here.

A copy of the column structure is here.
