The school caters for pupil’s individual pathways in a number of ways and at a number of stages throughout a pupil’s school career. These main transitions are at the end of the BGE where pupils are provided with an opportunity for specialisation and choice from S2 into S3 whilst maintaining the broad spectrum of curricular areas. This is then refined into the subjects that pupils select for their national qualifications in S4 and beyond. At the appropriate juncture the school offers Gradu8 College courses, Foundation Apprenticeships and support for progression into college, university and the world of work in conjunction with our Skills Development Scotland (SDS) partners.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the timescales for these processes may shift from those of previous years as we adapt to latest Scottish Government and South Lanarkshire Council advice. Regardless, our top priority is to maintain the highest quality of educational provision for our young people.
