I went on to the University of Edinburgh where I completed four years gaining a Business Degree with Honours. I now work for the BBC in London on ‘The One Show’.

Biology

Biology - the science of life itself! The department remains one of the most popular especially for those who want to study in the areas of medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine at University. Areas covered include ecology, agriculture, human anatomy and physiology, biotechnology (cheese, wine and yoghurt production) as well as trying to answer some of the questions related to why we are the way we are (inheritance). 

Two garden areas are maintained by pupils, within the school grounds which actively support our Gold status as a health promoting school, and our achievement of receiving the Eco-Schools Scotland green flag.

In S1 and S2 we aim to capture the natural enthusiasm of pupils at this stage.  At National 4/5  level a range of teaching approaches ensures that pupils achieve to the best of their ability and enjoy the subject.  Success at Intermediate 2 level qualifies the student to enter Higher Human Biology or college work and is regarded as being a good basis for further studies which require a knowledge of Biology.  Advanced Higher Biology is also offered.
