Explanation:
This concerns the same revision I told you before, and it is simply a naming convention. I hope I am not mistaking this one, because they change the names almost every year.
The first cycle is what I referred to as elementary school (4 years).
The second cycle is what I referred to as middle school (2 years)
The third cycle is what I referred to as the first three years of secondary school.
Together, the three cycles encompass the Portuguese compulsory school years.
So, another name for a c+s school would be a school of the second and third cycle.

I hope this helps.
