Many of our students have recently made decisions about which courses to study in the coming session; others are in the process of making these choices now. We are very proud of the degree of personalisation and choice we provide at Peebles High School and are pleased that this year we are offering even more courses than in previous sessions. Our partnerships with Borders College and Queen Margeret University mean that students can choose courses never before offered to students in the Senior Phase at Peebles and the commitment of our staff to developing new and challenging courses ensures that our provision within the school continues to grow and develop. Please look under our 'Options' button on the menu bar above to read about the courses on offer for students from S1-S6.
Feeling the pressure of making the right choices can cloud the judgement of even the most diligent and thoughtful students, so it is important to seek support. Our Pastoral PTs commit to speaking to every student about their choices and they always offer considered and informed advice. Students should also speak to their teachers, friends and family before making their decisions.
Advice for students:
Remember that one of the best indicators of whether or not a course is the right one for you is thinking about how much you enjoy it - learning is so much easier when you are genuinely engaged in the new knowledge and skills on offer. If choosing a course you have never studied before, be sure to read the course descriptor carefully and, if you can, speak to people who know most about the course. Never be afraid to ask questions.
