S2 into S3 Pathways

S3 is the final year of Broad General Education and students are given an opportunity to personalise their learning while still covering all key curricular areas.

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.
