Course Choice Information

This guide has been prepared so that you know what subjects are offered at Deans Community High School. You will find information on subject content, skills developed and possible progression pathways for each of the subjects within each Curricular Area.

In February you will be required to complete an electronic form detailing your course choices for the next academic year. Students going into S3, S5 and S6 will take part in a personal interview with one of the senior management team to discuss their course choices and what they hope to achieve from their S5/6 courses prior to completing the electronic form.
