S1 Science

Curriculum for Excellence

In S1 Science, a course has been written within the faculty which covers the experiences and outcomes of the Curriculum for Excellence. This involves a huge change in the way that Science is taught in S1 at Larbert High School, in the active learning strategy that will be in place as well as the structure of the course.



The pupils will be taught by one teacher and will combine the study of Physics, Chemistry and Biology together in each of the topic areas.
