During the week beginning Monday 26th Novemeber 2018, pupils in S3, S4 and S5 will be given a mock option form to complete at home in consultation with parents/carers. The purpose of this is to gather relevant data to gauge the level of interest in particular subjects and courses. This data will be used to design the final option process which will begin in February 2019, with a view to allowing as many students as possible to select their desired courses at the appropriate level.
Please note that pupils are asked to highlight reserve options as not all pupils will be able to select each of their desired subjects. This process however, is aimed at minimising the number of pupils who have to access their reserve choices.
The mock option forms have been discussed during assemblies and will be distributed during PSE time. A copy of the mock option forms can be found below, along with descriptors for the courses that we offer in partnership with Ayrshire College. Please note that college courses will be timetabled to minimise disruption to other school courses.
The completed forms must be signed by the pupil, parents/carers and the pupil’s Pastoral Support teacher before being returned during the week beginning Monday 3rd Dec 2018 to their Pastoral Support Teacher.
