In the senior phase pupils have the opportunity to study for a range of qualifications at N3,4,5, Higher and Advanced Higher level with approx 47% of S6 pupils progressing their studies at college or university. Following a review of our Curriculum we are embarking on a very exciting journey in extending the learning opportunities for our young people in school, Midlothian and beyond.
