The Chemistry Department is situated in two large, well-appointed laboratories.
Chemistry is an integral component of the General Science curriculum taught in Transitus 2 and Senior 1. Chemistry is then taught as a separate subject, by the subject specialists, from Senior 2 and presentations are made in SQA exams at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher. Through studying Chemistry our pupils acquire an awareness of its impact on the world around us and develop informed opinions of current issues.
A flourishing Junior Science Club runs weekly in the department with the help of enthusiastic senior pupils to help bring on the next generation of successful scientists.
