S3 Chemistry

Our S3 Chemistry course is based around 4th Level Experiences & Outcomes from Curriculum for Excellence. The units of our course mirror N4-Higher Chemistry courses to help progression through the school.

Our S3 pupils have access to a Microsoft Team (using their Glow login) which has documents, homework and online-help to aid with their studies. Microsoft Teams is available as an app or through the website. Please see the class teacher for any help getting logged in.
