Course Choice for Session 2021/2022

Documentation for each year group is below the Background Information:

Background Information

Given the current circumstances due to the pandemic we are preparing to conduct the coursing process online. Pupils will be emailed information regarding the process, including a Google Form that will allow them to submit their initial choices. They will have a Coursing Interview via Google Meet with their Pupil Support Leader. Course choices will be confirmed with pupils, parents and carers once all of the S3-6 coursing information is received and we have been able to establish the most efficient way of giving as many pupils their first choices, as is possible. 

All pupils in S2 upwards are currently being asked to think about their options to study more in depth further up the school.  From S2 upwards there is an element of choice as to what pupils are; 

  • interested in
  • good at 
  • may require a background in due to their chosen career path 

There are a number of ways in which we can support pupils in this process; subject teachers, guidance staff, career advisor (Skills Development Scotland) and of course discussion with parents!

Further to support from staff in school we also suggest the use of the following websites for information surrounding choosing the right subjects;

We will also try and make as much information available to families as possible with regards to the other options e.g. College and Foundation Apprenticeships.

Here are some of the presentations that pupils and parents/ carers may find useful.
