The PowerPoint below was shared at the recent Parents’ Evening and gives more detail about the process –

It is worth remembering that in the Senior Phase (S4-6) students can often return to subjects they may have not taken in S3. All students will study English, Maths, RMPS, PE & PSE as part of the core curriculum. We are sometimes asked about 3 sciences – it is not possible to take 3 sciences in S3, although there is an Environmental Science option in the skills column.
