The science faculty consists of 2 Biology Labs, 2 Chemistry Labs, 2 Physics Labs, one Advanced Higher Lab and a flexible area for independant study. The department offers a full range of National Qualifications including Advanced Higher, Higher and National 4/5 courses in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The department also offers National 4 Science and a range of master classes in S3. Pupils in S1 and S2 follow an integrated science course based on level 3 and 4 experiences and outcomes.

Homework is issued at least once a week for pupils following National Qualifications (senior phase). Junior phase pupils would be expected to complete homework every 7-14 days.
