Senior Phase Curriculum & Pathways

The Senior Phase Curriculum (S4 to S6)

The Senior Phase extends across three years with exit points as appropriate to individual pupils. Pupils will follow a curricular Pathway that is best suited to their aspirations post school.

Our Senior Phase comprises S4, 5 and 6 who are considered as a cohort during their senior years. This means they will be offered the same subjects to choose from and will be timetabled together.

At the end of S3 pupil will choose to study a maximum of 6 subjects at National 3, 4 or 5 or a vocational option during their S4 year.

Within S5/6 a maximum of 5 Higher or Advanced Higher courses will be offered.  However as S4-6 will follow the new curriculum as a cohort those not sitting Higher or Advanced Higher courses can choose up to 6 National 3, 4 or 5 subjects or a mix of National, Higher and Advanced Higher courses.  Additional vocational courses and opportunities will also be on offer.
