SCHOLAR – Online Learning Materials

We would like to draw your attention to this free resource which is designed to enhance pupils’ learning.

Useful features are available such as a revision planner, discussion boards & tutor support, a glossary within each subject and practice assessments.

If you wish to learn more about the SCHOLAR site, please read the leaflet available here:


If you are interested in access to the site, please contact Brenda Laidlaw at who will provide you with a parent password.

The SCHOLAR materials are more appropriate for pupils studying courses at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher who are normally in years 4, 5 and 6.  It may be helpful for the parents of younger pupils to familiarise themselves with this useful resource as their child prepares for the senior phase.

Senior Phase pupils studying subjects available on the Scholar site have been allocated a password to enable them to make use of the materials
