Course Choices

Important course choices are made when a student is moving from S2 to S3 and again into senior school (S4-S6).

At these stages, parents/carers receive information on the range and content of available courses. Careers advice is also made available. Parent evenings are organised in advance of the choices being made and staff make careful recommendations about the most suitable courses for each student, and parents/carers are invited to discuss these with the appropriate teachers.

Such recommendations should be considered carefully before final decisions are made.
