Academic Life

The joy for learning begins in our Nursery and further develops in our Junior School.  The high academic standards and expectations from our Junior School continue to be fostered in our Senior School.

English, Mathematics, Languages and Sciences form the core of the curriculum with a wide choice of other areas of study available throughout Senior School. From S1, the curricular structure is designed to set pupils firmly on the road to success in external examinations at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels in S4, S5 and S6.

Attainment is significantly ahead of the majority of Scottish schools with Higher and Advanced Higher pass rates consistently high. This is the result of the hard work, effort and dedication of staff and pupils, as well as the efficacy of small class sizes operating in rooms with excellent IT support.

Our wider-curricular programme offers a fantastic variety of stimulating opportunities for the development of a wide range of talents, and there are many pupils who are successful at national level in a variety of activities.
