S1/2 Academic Overview

Pupils follow a broad academic course, experiencing all subjects and building strong academic foundations that prepare them for national qualifications. Pupils can identify their interests and strengths, allowing them to confidently choose their subjects at the end of S2.

S3/4 Academic Overview

The choices pupils make for S3 and S4 will form the broad foundations upon which to base their choice of five courses in S5 and three or four courses in S6.

S5 Academic Overview

Higher courses are significantly more demanding than those in S4.

Pupils at Morrison’s Academy study five academic courses in S5.

Heads of House consult closely with parents and offer pupils advice on the best subject choices for them; every effort is made to accommodate these choices.

S6 Academic Overview

Traditionally, S6 pupils at Morrison’s Academy study a blend of Advanced Higher, Higher and, if necessary, National 5 courses in S6.

When making decisions about subject choice, pupils should consider their aspirations for life beyond school and any specific subjects required for a university course or intended career.
