S3 Parents’ Evening

The S3 option process involves moving forward with six subjects into the senior phase (S4), two of these subjects being English and Maths.

To support pupils in this process, all S3 pupils will have an interview with their Pastoral Support teacher. This interview will give them the opportunity to discuss their current subjects, their strengths and future plans. From this discussion, Pastoral Support teachers will advise and support pupils in choosing the most appropriate course of study for next session. This process usually begins in the middle of January with an assembly to launch the options programme to all S3 pupils. Letters to parents will be been sent beforehand and the 2016 letters can be found below, as well as the option choice form given to pupils.
