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.
|S3||Languages & Literacy||Mathematics & Numeracy||Expressive Arts||Social Studies|
In S4 most pupils will follow six SQA courses. All pupils will study English and Maths and most will choose any four other courses. There is also a core provision of PE, RMPS and PSE.
In S5 and S6 pupils could follow up to five SQA courses. In S5 & S6 there is a core provision of PSE and PE.
Information is available from faculties to support this choice and the “Nationals in a Nutshell” guides provided a good overview of what many courses involve: http://www.npfs.org.uk/nationals-in-a-nutshell/
