The Option Choice booklet has been produced for second year pupils and their parents. We hope that it gives you the right amount of information about the courses which are on offer throughout S3, and that it will be useful when there are discussions at home about what the best choices might be.
In S3 all pupils will study English, Maths and Modern Languages. In addition we recommend that pupils will choose at least two social subjects courses. Pupils will also make additional choices from science, expressive arts and technologies. All pupils will study core subjects of PSE, RE and PE.
At the end of S3, pupils will choose which 4 subjects they wish to continue to study towards a national qualification as well as English and Maths. You will get more information about this in February next year. All subjects you choose in S3 can progress to National 3, 4 or 5 courses in S4, and core subjects will also continue.
