All pupils study mathematics in first and second year. During third year, pupils are placed in a class leading to an appropriate qualification. Currently, we have pupils following courses in Mathematics, leading eventually to a Higher course, and others following courses in Applications of Mathematics. For all pupils, there will be an appropriate course available in S5, should they wish to continue to study the subject.

Applications of Mathematics courses at levels N4 and N5 will prepare young people for careers in many sectors including finance, technology and others.

Mathematics courses at N4 and N5 lead to Higher Mathematics and specialisation beyond in the field of mathematics, engineering and associated fields.
