Glenwood High School - Curriculum for Excellence
Every child and young person in Scotland is entitled to experience a Broad General Education (BGE). This BGE takes place from the early years to the end of S3 and is represented by learning across all of the experiences and outcomes to the third curriculum level together with those selected for study at the fourth, as far as is consistent with each child or young person’s needs.
Pupils at Glenwood High School experience a very broad learning experience in S1. Breadth must be maintained in S2/3 as part of the BGE but pupils will be given the opportunity to have greater personalisation and choice by selecting some of their subjects.At the end of S3, pupils will enter the Senior Phase.
