Making Choices in S3 for S4: (updated 21-01-2024)


The end of S3 marks the end of the Broad General Education and pupils once again make subject choices which will determine the subjects in which they attempt to achieve National Qualifications in S4.


The following parent/carer presentation provides information about the subject choices process when moving from S3 into S4:

Pupils in S3 will have multiple pieces of information shared with them in their PSE classes and also on the S3 year group Google Classroom to support them with choosing their subjects for S4. The Senior Phase Options Information booklet and GRADU8 youth employability booklet below should support discussions at home to help make informed choices for S4:
