Physics

Physics is taught as a single subject in S2 and certificate examinations are sat at Standard Grade (S4), Higher (S5) and Advanced Higher (S6).

Against the national trend, there is a high take up of Physics at all levels, with a large percentage of pupils going on to study Physics-related subjects at degree level.

Illustrating the range and diversity of involvement of the department in extra-curricular work is the success of pupils in such competitions and activities as the annual residential trip for S2 pupils to the Eurospace Centre in Belgium, the West of Scotland Physics Education Group Live Wire Competition, Young Engineers, Royal Army Robo-Buggy Competition, Royal Navy Engineering Challenge, Scottish Space School, Smallpeice Trust Engineering days and summer schools, and the Arkwright Engineering Design Scholarship.
