On entering 1st Year at High School our young people begin what is called the Broad General Education phase. During this period they are taught a wide spectrum of subjects in all areas of the curriculum giving them a wide range of curricular experience. At the end of S3 they will pick from all of these subjects depending on what they both enjoy or are good at and select a reduced curriculum for 4th year. In 4th year they will move on to either National 4 or National 5 courses based on their ability. The BGE phase covers three years of school and a wide range of subjects, this forum will discuss issues that are important for this phase and parent council will have a group dedicated to supporting parents of young people in these 3 crucial years. If you are interested in joining this group please join this forum and let me know.
