We understand that the Senior Phase course choice process can be an anxious time for learners and parents, and hope that you are able to attend our Senior Phase information evening where our faculties, along with Further Education, Higher Education and industry partners, will be available to discuss and advise on progression pathways for your young person. View the online booklet or download a copy.

Mackie Academy continues to offer an extensive range of Senior Phase courses at National, Higher and Advanced Higher levels. Through partnerships with local schools and North East of Scotland College we have increased our choice of courses this year, allowing young people to access an greater number of courses delivered at establishments other than Mackie Academy.

Our ‘free choice’ model for Senior Phase options maximises the chances of learners being able to study their desired combination of courses. However, the viability of running all subjects and courses initially on offer can only be determined once all choices have been submitted for all year groups and the number of students selecting each course at each stage is known.  In a very small number of cases some subject combinations may not be able to be accommodated. Learners in S3-S5 will receive paper copies of their option form through their tutor teacher next week.

If, in the meantime, you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact with your child’s Pupil Support and Attainment Team Leader.
