Learner Pathways 2019-20
At each stage of their secondary school learner journey, Perth Grammar pupils have the opportunity to personalise their curriculum according to their interests and aptitudes. As they move through the Broad General Education (S1-3) and into the Senior Phase (S4-6), there is an increasing focus on guiding pupils onto a learner pathway that is suited to their future career ambitions. Whether this is a vocational or academic pathway, we do everything we can to open up opportunities for them to achieve the qualifications and achievements that they need to be successful.
