Dear Parent/Carer


S3 Pathways Information Evening


Our S3 Pathways Information Evening will take place from 6:30 – 7:30 pm on Monday 22 January for all current S2 students.

The purpose of the evening is to provide parents/carers with an overview of the S3 Pathways process, which all S2 students will be undertaking during the months of January to March.  It will include an update of recent changes in the Scottish Education system, an outline of how our curriculum supports progression and the wider opportunities that are available to students.  You will hear from members of our Senior Leadership Team, Pastoral Care Team, Skills Development Scotland and also reflections from senior students who have been through the process.

As your child moves into their third year of Curriculum for Excellence in Bannerman, they will continue on their learning journey, which will include National Qualifications within the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) framework.  By S4, students will progress to National 4 (N4) or National 5 (N5), completing these in May 2020.  The evening will provide an opportunity for parents/carers to ask questions about the pathways process. 

From next week, the S3 Pathways booklet will be available on the school website ( and paper copies will also be distributed to all S2 students. 

I very much look forward to meeting you on Monday 22 January.  In the meantime, do feel free to contact the school if you have any questions about the content of this letter.


Yours faithfully
