From Fourth year, pupils follow a range of National Qualifications Courses from level 3 to level 7 on the Scottish Qualifications Framework ie Access to Advanced Highers courses and which are largely based on courses of study taken during the Broad General Education in S1 – S3.
The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) offer courses from National 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.
Currently an important feature of the Senior Phase of the curriculum is the grouping of schools in an area along with the local Further Education College in order to pool resources and thus share the teaching of certain minority subjects. The timetables for the members schools in this ‘consortium’ as it is called, are sufficiently coordinated to allow students to move among schools for certain subjects and also to attend the Further Education College for special courses of a vocational or practical nature. Free travel is provided by the Authority to facilitate such movement.
The local consortium consists of Trinity High, Renfrew High and Park Mains High Schools although exchanges may also increasingly involve all other Secondary Schools in Renfrewshire.
Sixth Year pupils have the opportunity of doing Advanced Higher work and in recent years, the school has presented pupils for Advanced Higher in English, Mathematics, Art, Biology, Chemistry, Graphic Communication, History, Computing.
