In S1 and S2 Geography, History and Modern Studies are taught as individual subjects within the framework of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. Through a range of learning methods students have the opportunity to develop specific skills and knowledge relevant to each subject. During S2 they are then provided with the support to make subject choices for S3.
