Personalisation and Course Choice Information

Learning takes place across all eight curriculum areas from S1-S3. In S1 and S2 all pupils will follow a common course.  In S3 there is the opportunity for some personalisation when pupils make a choice to specialise within the curricular areas. This choice will be made around March in S2.
