The Junior School curriculum is in step with the broad outlines of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. Integrated learning encourages children to make connections and be inventive. The Expressive Arts are a notable strength: each class in the Junior School puts on a performance of drama, music and dance every year. However, the pupils also learn through traditional subjects and we pay particular attention to core skills in literacy and numeracy. From Junior 1 onwards, every child has specialist teaching in Modern Languages, Music and PE; from Junior 5 there is specialist teaching in Art and Drama.
