We have established and will continue to develop curriculum links with The Royal School, Dungannon, South West College and St Patrick’s College, Dungannon in order to open up additional options at GCSE and post-16.

Students are normally expected to take four subjects to AS level and the majority continue with three to A2 level but we encourage those with the ability and application to take four subjects through to A2 level.

The school currently offers 25 subjects at GCSE and 32 at A Level. This more than meets the Entitlement Framework regulation of 24 subjects at GCSE and 27 at post-16.
