All current third year pupils have been given a letter today advising what course they will continue to study into fourth year. The levels have been agreed based upon the pupil's own choice, the teacher's professional judgement and the results of ongoing and formal assessment. There is a return slip on the bottom of each letter. Please get in touch if you need any clarification or want to discuss the levels further.
Calling all seniors!
The maths department is open for revision help.
Feel free to drop in to ask a question or to work all day.
We're pretty good at maths if you have any problems and pointing you in the right direction if you just want some general study help.
Also, feel free to use the contact form - we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Are you struggling to make a decision between studying for N5 Mathematics or N5 Lifeskills Mathematics next year? Check out our top tips below:
Where are you heading?
Check what sort of mathematical skills are required for your chosen path. Whether it is further education or employment, some maths skills will be needed. But they don't all need trigonometry and algebraic fractions! Do your reseach online or speak to careers staff for further guidance.
What sort of maths are you good at?
If you enjoy algebraic reasoning and problem solving then Mathematics is the route for you. If you prefer applying skills to familiar context and real life scenrios then choose Lifeskills.
Do you want to do Higher?
Only Higher Mathematics is available. There is no Higher Lifeskills Mathematics course.
What does the exam look like?
Both courses have 3 units and an external exam in May. Previous exam papers and further information about the courses are available on the SQA website - Mathematics and Lifeskills

The next written assessment for S2 will be on Friday 22nd May, period 3.
Pupils should have revision by the Friday 8th at the latest. Feel free to check homework planners and schoolbags.
The next written assessment for S1 will be on Thursday morning, period 1.
All pupils should now have a copy of the revision booklet for this.
Pupils have been directed to the correct section of the booklet to work on. If the work is too easy, move forward a section, too difficult then go back.
