In S1 and in S2 our learners are given the opportunity to choose 3 learning experiences in addition to subjects within curricular areas. These experiences are known as elective courses providing relevant, challenging and enjoyable learning experiences within stimulating contexts to meet the varied interests and needs of young people.
They can help young people make meaningful links across different aspects of learning, and provide opportunities for progression in knowledge, understanding and development of transferable skills. Revisiting a concept or skill from different perspectives deepens understanding and can also make the curriculum more meaningful.
Each elective course lasts for a teaching block of around 10 weeks.
Electives are not guaranteed, but all learners to make 5 choices, in order of their personal preference, from which 3 will be allocated. The school will always endeavor to provide learners with their first choices however this will may not always be possible.
Please read the PACE booklet and when you have made your choices, click on the correct QR code which will take you to a form so that you can let us know your 5 choices.
