Options for Senior Phase

The Senior Phase of Curriculum for Excellence encompasses S4 through to S6. The S1-S3 curriculum provides students with a Broad General Education (BGE), which prepares them for entry into National Qualification courses, which start in the Senior Phase.

Progress through the BGE determines the starting level in National Qualification courses.

Information booklets are issued to pupils and parents in S3 and this year’s information is shown below.  Any columns shown are subject to change based upon pupils’ initial choices of subjects for S3 and senior phase.
