Broad General Education S1-S3

During your first three years in Carnoustie High School you will have been learning through a broad, general education.

You will have experienced a wide range of subjects across a range of curricular areas – Expressive Arts, Languages, Mathematics, Social Subjects, Health and Wellbeing, Sciences and Technologies. In addition to this you have also followed a Personal and Social Education programme.

The broad general education provides an excellent foundation for you to move on to study for qualifications, at the right level for you, in the senior phase of secondary school.

More information can be found in the School Handbook.

Senior Phase S4-S6

The senior phase of your education includes S4 to S6 and is the stage of education where you will build up a portfolio of qualifications in preparation for your life in college, university or in the workplace. There is increased personalisation and choice in both the subjects that you can choose and the level of qualification that you can study for.

ENGLISH: English National 4 and 5, English Higher, English Advanced Higher.

The courses provide learners with the opportunity to develop their love of literature and debate alongside the finer literacy skills of listening, talking, reading and writing in order to understand and use language more creatively.
The structure of the courses allows pupils to refine their critical and analytical skills as they progress through the years, providing vital transferable skills for life after school.
