Science

In science you’ll discover all about the world around us. From the living world in Biology, the material world in Chemistry, and the physical world in Physics. So, if you’re interested in how and why things work then science is for you!

In the science faculty we also aim to develop transferable skills to help you grow and develop. You’ll improve your literacy, numeracy and problem-solving skills to help you in other subjects and outwith school.

Pupils cover a full and exciting range of topics in S1 and S2 as part of our BGE course. Pupils will cover 3 Biology, 3 Chemistry, and 3 Physics topics over the two years to give all learners an opportunity to experience all three science before making their subject choices for S3 and S4.

When moving into S3, pupils have the opportunity to choose from the 3 discrete sciences at BGE Level 4 or can opt for Level 3 science if they found S1 and S2 science more challenging. We offer all three sciences at National 4 and National 5 in S4, allowing progression to Higher in S5 and Advanced Higher in S6. We also offer a Level 5 National Progression Award in Practical Science for S5 and S6 pupils.
