Transition to Forrester High School

Time is marching on and Easter will soon be upon us. For parents of young people transitioning from p7, to Forrester High School in August 2018 there are two documents on our website to support:
• Your understanding of this process and
• Your ability to support your son / daughter to ensure this move is the most positive experience possible.

Corstorphine Youth and Community Centre

Corstorphine Youth and Community Centre – Opportunities for young people in our area.

Corstorphine Community Council are currently preparing funding applications to raise money to rebuild the Corstorphine Public Hall. We would be grateful if you could spare 3 minutes to answer a few questions. This would help them to include as many of your ideas as possible.

Please complete the survey below to give your views:


DYW Survey

Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) supports better connections between industry and education so your child(ren) can be informed and inspired about careers and the world of work.

DYW Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian would like to understand parent/carer views to identify if you feel equipped in supporting your child(ren) through these stages and decisions while at school.

It would be helpful if parents could take a few minutes to complete the survey below.



S4-6 Full Reports

Due to the snow closures last week, there will be a slight delay in the issue of the S4-6 reports. These will now go out to students at tutor time on Monday 12th March. Many thanks for your patience.

Continued School Closure Friday 2nd March

Dear students, parents and families

As many of you will already be aware, the decision for all schools to remain closed tomorrow, Friday 2nd March was announced through the Council website and Twitter earlier today. http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/emergencyclosures

Our Education Convener, Councillor Ian Perry has also written about why decisions to close schools are not taken lightly:


I hope that this early announcement gives families a chance to make arrangements for child care. I also hope that students, particularly senior students preparing for exams, are able to use this unexpected free time as productively as possible. To that end, staff have been sharing resources and study materials through their Twitter accounts, Edmodo and office 365.

As stated in the official Council communication, we expect to be open for business on Monday and I look forward to seeing everyone back safely.

Best wishes

Stephen Rafferty
