I thoroughly enjoyed my year as Head Boy and feel it was a good way to give back to the school that has given me and my two brothers so much life experience and great memories.

Higher/Intermediate 2 English

 The English Department will offer two courses to our pupils entering S5 in 2012-2013. The Higher course is appropriate for pupils who achieve a Credit level award, grade 1 or 2, in both of the Reading and Writing components. The Intermediate 2 course is suitable for pupils who achieve a General level award in either or both of the Reading and Writing components of the Standard Grade course. 

 As both courses have an identical framework, pupils who achieve a good  Intermediate 2 award in S5 can then go on to follow the Higher course in S6.  Pupils who successfully complete the Higher course in S5 will be able to progress to Advanced Higher in S6.  A grade A or B pass at Higher is the recommended entry level for the Advanced Higher course, but students with Grade C will be given consideration.

COURSE OUTLINE

The course comprises three 40 hour units:

 

1)            i) Language Study           (Analysis of close reading passages)

                   ii) Writing Folio                 (Two pieces of extended writing)

2)               Literary Study           (Critical essay writing and analysis of unseen texts)
