After six weeks of hard work and research a group of our students have been successful in their application to the UK Space Design Challenge. They have been invited to attend the national finals at Imperial College London, on 19 and 20 March 2016. If the team wins the national finals they will be going to NASA […]
The Faculty of Science incorporates the discrete subjects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
S1 and S2
Learners follow an integrated science course which is designed to deliver the Third level Experiences and Outcomes from the Curriculum for Excellence programme of study.
This course is focussed on Knowledge and Understanding, Problem Solving and Investigative skills.
Learners continue with the Broad general education but make choices from the three discrete sciences. Learners follow a course which is designed to deliver third and Fourth level Experiences for their chosen science.
In S4 learners entering the Senior Phase have the opportunity to choose discrete sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) which they can study at National 4 or National 5 level.
S5 and S6
Learners may continue to study science with National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels being offered for all three science subjects.
The Science Faculty encourages the wider achievement of Craigmount’s students by giving them opportunities to experience Science beyond the classroom.
We organise a variety of excursions and regularly invite outside visitors from the science community to deliver talks to our learners.
Links with the universities provide opportunities for learners to carry out practical work in university laboratories and our participation in the STEM ambassadors and Pro-science programme allows graduates to offer support to learners in lessons.
Our learners can also take part in various national competitions including the RSC Top of the bench competition and the IOP Satellite in a can challenge.
