Course choices S3 into S4

Charleston Academy Option Choice 2021

At this time of Year we start to plan for our new Timetable which starts in June.

Faculties have now confirmed Courses that will be on offer across the school. 
SMT and Guidance staff have been planning how Pupils will be supported through the Course Choice process.
This year, we will start with S3 into S4 options. Staff have already reported progress for this year group. 

The Senior Phase Option Choice booklet is below.
Over the next two weeks Guidance Staff will carry out individual Google meets with current S3 pupils focusing on their S4 Option Choice.
Please ask your child to monitor their Google mail for this invitation.
We would encourage you to prepare your child for this meeting. 

Please have a look at the Senior Course Choice booklet and think about your child’s strengths and interests as they choose courses which will support their vocational pathway. 

A link is provided to a PowerPoint which will support you with your child’s Course Choice.

If you have questions please email .

Home Economics Summer Challenge Winners

Congratulations to all the Summer challenge prize winners who completed a variety of at-home challenges set over the summer by the Home Economics Department.

Chloe Hardie ( 1st), Alastair DeVenny ( 2nd) and Laina MacAskill (3rd) won top prizes in the NPA Bakery Show Stopper Challenge. The class was asked to design a show stopper cake with a Scottish summer theme. The entries were all excellent and showed imagination and a good interpretation of the brief. Good technical knowledge regarding cake making, cake coverings and baking techniques won the day for the three winners. Move over Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood! Chloe, Alastair and Laina are on the way up!

Other events included a Summer Cookery challenge where students were asked to cook a variety of dishes at home over the holidays and send in photos and details to their teacher. Congratulations go to Innes Munro and Isla Woodford for some outstanding work!
