Broad General Education

The S1-3 course covers a range of texts and topics which build on prior skills. Pupils improve their skills in Reading, Writing, Talking and Listening through exposure to a variety of texts of literary worth and merit incorporating prose, poetry, drama and digital media. Pupils undertake a range of activities to satisfy the ‘Outcomes and Experiences’ of the Curriculum for Excellence. The Broad General Education provides a platform for pupils to progress to the courses within the Senior Phase.
