The science department offer courses in biology, chemistry and physics. All S1/2 pupils complete a mixed science course. Towards the end of S2, pupils may choose one or more sciences when they personalise their timetables.
The science department have a science club each week with lots of fun experiments. On top of this we are competing in numerous science/engineering challenges for school children across Scotland and beyond. More details on such activities are available from any science teacher.
The science club has made some videos available here :
The links on the right provide more information about each course and the exciting careers a qualification in science can open up ( not just a science teacher ! )
Please come up to the department if you have any questions about courses, careers and qualifications.
