Course Choice - S2 into S3
Please click on the categories on the right to find out more info
S3 marks the final year of the Broad General Education phase of Curriculum for Excellence. In the first two years at Kinross High School all pupils have been following a common course. In Third Year pupils have the opportunity to select subjects that they wish to continue to study. This degree of personalisation and choice is structured within curricular areas to maintain the principles of the Broad General Education.
Pupils will continue with English, Maths and their current Modern Language (French or German). They will choose one subject from each of four curricular areas: Expressive Arts, Science, Social Subjects and Technology. There are a further two choices to be made from all the available subjects.
All pupils will also be timetabled for “Core” subjects: PE, Religious and Moral Education, Social Education and Tutor Support.
Pupil Support teachers will be working with every pupil in PSE and on a 1:1 basis to ensure choices are informed and appropriate.
When pupils move into S4 they will choose which subjects to study for National Qualifications. Pupils must select English and Maths but they may choose any five of the subjects that they have been studying in S3.
