Academic Curriculum - St George's Upper School
A flexible academic secondary curriculum
Girls commence their secondary education in the second year of Lower School in Remove (P7). This is a year earlier than most schools in Scotland.
In Remove, Lower 4 and Upper 4 (P7-S2) girls receive a broad general secondary education. Towards the end of Upper 4 (S2) subject choices are made for the two years of Fifth Form (S3 and S4). Girls study for 9 GCSE qualifications which are examined at the end of the Upper 5 (S4) year.
In Sixth Form girls choose five subjects to study at Higher in Lower 6 (S5), with most studying three subjects or more in Upper 6 (S6) at Advanced Higher.
