S3-6 iPad Application Survey (further opportunity)

Calling all S3-6 who have yet to apply for a school iPad…. please use the link below to complete the survey before it closes again on Friday 26th October at 11.45pm. If you were unable to attend a previous launch event with your parent/carer but have already applied using an earlier survey, you do not need to apply again.

Breakfast Club

I am pleased to report that our school breakfast club is already having a very positive impact. As well as ensuring that everyone has access to breakfast, breakfast club has created a great buzz in the social area at the start of the day. This is a PEF initiative, financed by Magic Breakfast and supported by Sarah Ross and her amazing team of staff volunteers. Breakfast club is open to all students and is really helping some of our young people to manage their time in the morning. (more…)

UCAS Personal Statement Support

Our S6 UCAS candidates are well on their journey to completing their application forms but now have the difficult task of writing their personal statements! They will be taken through this process and helped by their Pupil Support Leaders to produce an awesome personal statement that will help them into their chosen course. All S6 UCAS candidates need to take some time and read the links in the attachment below to help them on their way. GOOD LUCK!
