In the first three years pupils follow a general science course which has aspects of each of the main scientific disciplines. They learn how to use research and analysis to solve problems. They should learn the skills they need in order to safely do practical work in a laboratory.
The skills they learn at this stage will give most pupils the option to pursue any of the senior courses
Pupils will work through the National Qualifications courses in one or more of the disciplines above before progressing to CfE Higher and Advanced Higher.
