Preston Lodge is a community of learning. We value achievement, happiness and respect.

Preston Lodge High School GC/LW 11 January 2017 Dear Parent/Carer S2 Options Evening – 25 January 2017 Our S2 Options Evening will take place from 7.00 – 8.30 pm on Wednesday 25 January. At Preston Lodge High School we have constructed an S1-3 curriculum in line with Curriculum for Excellence guidelines, which means that traditional S2 course choice has changed. However, because the S1-3 ‘broad general education’ still requires a degree of personalisation, S2 students will still have to make choices for S3, but they now do this in a rather different way. This Options Evening is an opportunity for all parents and carers to hear how their child can make the right choices. The evening itself will explain the structure of our S3 curriculum, how S3 links into S4, how our S4-6 curriculum works and the supports that are available for all families in making choices. The evening will also provide an opportunity for parents /carers and students to ask questions about the process. It is essential that each S2 student and at least one of their parents/carers attend this evening to focus thinking around the choices to be made for the year ahead. From next week the S3 choice booklet will be available at Paper copies of the booklet will also be distributed to students. Based on a recent review of our S3 curriculum we are confident that we are able to provide students with a coherent, purposeful and exciting learning experience which will prepare them well for the National Qualifications in S4 and beyond. I very much look forward to seeing you on 25 January. In the meantime do contact your child’s guidance teacher if you have any questions about this event. Yours faithfully
