Academic subjects...

What will I study at Glasgow Academy?

We are proud of the wide range of subjects that are available to pupils at The Glasgow Academy.

In S1 our pupils start off studying around 13 different subjects. By the time you reach S3, the number of subjects you study is reduced to eight with a further reduction - to five - in the Higher year. We aim to be as flexible as possible, however, and some students may take as many as six or even seven Highers in their S5 year.

In preparation for university, our S6 students can study a wide range of Advanced Highers and often choose to combine these with further Highers. We currently also offer Highers for S6 in Philosophy, Politics and Psychology.
