The Science Department Architecture

S1-3 (Broad General Education)

S1 and S2 Third Level learning experiences and outcomes for science, organised into short courses in biology, chemistry and physics.

S3 Sciences at the Fourth Level.  Includes project work, research, experimentation and reporting.  Some of this work may be banked for a later presentation at National 4 or 5.

S4-6 (Senior Phase)

Progression in the sciences at the senior level (S4-6) is offered through National 4, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher courses in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science and Physics.
