St Margaret's Academy supports all our young people to move into a positive and sustained destination from school and our planning for the BGE and Senior Phase in Curriculum for Excellence underpins this aim.

To achieve this, we need to raise the awareness of the options and many different pathways that are available for pupils, parents and staff. It is important to view the BGE (S1 - S3) and the Senior Phase (S4 - S6) as a 3-year experience rather than a single year-on-year approach. We already have a track record of success in planning positive destinations from St Margaret's Academy, but we now want to build on this and ensure all our young people move onto a job, training opportunity, college course or university place when they leave us. Learners need to have parallel plans; a plan A, B and C, and keep their options open.

This website highlights the pathways taken by some of our pupils and gives information about all of the subjects which are available. You will see some of the experiences of our current and former pupils to give illustrations of the potential of the BGE and Senior Phase to deliver opportunities for our young people; importantly this places equal emphasis on academic qualifications as well as wider achievements and acquisition of a first-class skill set.
