Biology Study Support Sessions

Biology study support will be starting again after the September break on Wednesday lunchtimes and Thursdays after school. They are open to all students study biology at all levels, and are an opportunity to ask questions, get additional explanations and a positive place to engage with homework and self-study.

Study support is not just for revision before exams. It is a strategy that if established early, will help to clarify, consolidate and embed learning as you go along. Get into good habits early and join us.

University scholarship for pupils hoping to study law

Background to CMS

CMS is the 6th largest law firm in the world and has recently been named in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers.  As well as supporting students in their university applications, our Law Scholarships offer students a chance to develop a relationship with us and start their journey into the legal profession. We hope a CMS Law Scholarship is a great opportunity for a school pupil hoping to go on to study law.

Who can apply?

We are looking for two S5 or S6 state school pupils, hoping to go on to study law, to become our next CMS Law Scholarships winners for Scotland. The winners will receive £2,500 per year, for each year of their law degree, together with mentoring support and paid work experience with the firm. This is now our fifth year of awarding the bursary in Scotland and previous winners have gone on to study law at Aberdeen, Glasgow and Strathclyde.

How do pupils apply?

To enter the competition, we ask for a short essay and application form, which is to submitted by Wednesday 26 June 2019. You can find full details of the CMS Law Scholarships and how to apply on our website. A copy of our Rules for the competition in Scotland is below.

You will see that there are certain financial and academic criteria to be met in the competition – we will be happy to receive queries from pupils to confirm their eligibility, if they are unsure about this.
