Overview

In Third Year courses leading to Scottish Qualifications Authority examinations are introduced and pupils have a considerable choice of subjects, although English, Mathematics, a foreign language, a science subject and a social science must be included. S.Q.A. Higher Examinations are taken in Fifth Year and normally pupils take five subjects from the many on offer. Throughout the School pupils have ready access to computers. Each Senior School pupil also has a minimum of three periods per week devoted to Physical Education, including a games afternoon. In Sixth Year Advanced Highers are offered and these courses, with their emphasis on independent study, form a bridge between school and university and are an ideal preparation for university life. Additional Higher subjects may also be taken along with a selection of National Certificate Modules. Sixth Year pupils make a valuable contribution to the life of the School by running clubs for younger pupils, taking responsibility within the House System and sharing, as prefects, in the day-to-day running of the School. They invariably benefit considerably from these exciting and challenging experiences. While most pupils go on to Scottish universities, significant numbers regularly gain places at Oxford, Cambridge and other U.K. universities.
