Broad General Education
In S1, S2 and S3 our pupils will follow a broad general education in line with a Curriculum for Excellence. They will be given opportunities to develop their skills and competence in listening and talking, reading and writing and the personal and interpersonal skills which are important in life and the world of work. Furthermore, they will develop critical and creative thinking skills through the exploration of a wide variety of increasingly challenging texts.
National and Higher Qualifications
In S4, S5 and S6, our pupils will undertake the new National Qualifications. The main purpose of these courses is to provide learners with opportunities to develop the skills of listening, talking, reading and writing in order to understand and use language. As learners develop their literacy skills, they will be able to process information more easily, apply knowledge of language in practical and relevant contexts, and gain confidence to undertake new and more challenging tasks in a variety of situations.
