Curriculum information- Course Choice for pupils in S2-S5

Our aim at Currie Community High School is to provide a curriculum which is enjoyable, inclusive, which challenges and supports our young people to achieve their full potential and is relevant to life in today’s world.

All our young people are expected to attain qualifications at the highest level possible and to develop skills and qualities which will serve them well in the complex and fast changing world in which we live.  The curriculum is the vehicle through which our young people are supported and challenged to become successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens who move into positive and sustained destinations when they leave school.

Underpinning the curriculum is a commitment to learning for sustainability as enshrined in the school’s vision and values.

Below you will find the most up-to-date information regarding coursing.

Each year we carry out a “Dummy Run” in which pupils make initial choices for the following year. This helps us to plan better and make changes if required to suit the needs of our students. The “Dummy Run” is conducted in PSE in December with the formal coursing process taking place in February and March.  It is important to be aware that there may be some changes based on choices made by pupils and also please be aware that some of the content in the Information Books may also be subject to change during the course of the year as the SQA announce and implement updates on content and assessment.
