In S1 and S2 pupils follow a standard broad general education curriculum that introduces them to most of the subjects on offer in S3 and senior phase.

About half way through S2, pupils will start to make choices about what they will study in S3 and S4.  This page gives links and information to various resources to help pupils and parents/carers make informed decisions about what to chose.
