S1 - S3 English

When pupils come into S1, they follow a programme of work that allows
them to explore the experiences and outcomes for Literacy and English.

They experience depth, challenge and enjoyment through a variety of
texts including prose, drama, poetry and media. With the Theatre
Studies Unit, each pupil learns about the genre of pantomime,
culminating in a trip to the theatre to enjoy a live performance.

Woven into the S1/S2 curriculum are specific units of study that enable
interdisciplinary learning through which learners appreciate the skills
they are developing. Pupils are always encouraged to enter local and
national competitions such as 'Show Racism the Red Card' and the Rotary
Public Speaking competion.

The curriculm is aimed at providing a
broad general education to enable learners to develop their English
skills and those for life and work.

The course followed by pupils in S1 and S2 prepares the pupils for certificated courses futher up the school.
