In Modern Studies our aim is to help students understand the world they live in – the main social, political and economic issues which affect their everyday lives. We encourage students to consider contemporary issues in Scotland, Britain and internationally. In S1 and 2 students are taught in mixed ability classes on a rota basis with other social subjects (History, Geography and RME). Pupils who choose to continue into S3 are still taught in mixed ability classes, following a common course and building on their S1/2 experience. In the senior phase, Modern Studies is taught at National 4, National 5 and Higher level.
