The Pre Orientation Cycle consists of S4 & S5.
Pupils continue to follow a broad curriculum during these two years which includes a large number of compulsory subjects.
They must take mathematics and languages 1, 2 and 3 (all taught in the language concerned).
Biology, chemistry and physics are studied, as are history and geography in the student’s second language, as is ethics.
At least two elective subjects must be chosen from, for example, language 4, economics, Latin, Greek, art, music and ICT.
