In addition to English and Maths GCSE, students will select to study a further four to six GCSE subjects. Students and parents are encouraged and guided through this selection process as part of what we call our Guided Pathways provision.

The range of options offered to the students include general and applied subjects. To allow a greater depth of student experience and to continue meeting the requirements for the Entitlement Framework, collaboration occurs with other local education providers, as part of the Dungannon Learning Partnership, students can attend these providers to access subjects.
