Getting Started with Course Selection

The aim of this website is to provide a guide to students in planning their pathways towards further education, training and employment.

It contains a detailed list of courses to be offered at this school, along with a listing of teachers/personnel who can give you guidance with your course selections.

If you do not know what you want to do in your future, do not worry, that is extremely common. Keep your options broad.

Remember: Make your own choices 

Things to think about:
  • What are you interested in?
  • What are you good at?
  • What do you enjoy?
  • If you know what you want to do/study when you leave school - what subjects do they suggest?


Who can you talk to for advice?
  • Parents and caregivers
  • Teachers
  • School Deans
  • Your school's careers team in F1
  • Heads of Faculties and Heads of Departments
