Higher Media Opportunity

The Higher Media students took part in a fantastic filmmaking workshop, provided by Screen Education Edinburgh, on Friday 30th November. The students learned various filming skills, using high quality lighting and camera equipment, combined with professional techniques. The two and a half hour session was designed to give the students the necessary knowledge in order to allow them to make their own filmed media text appear as polished as possible.

Head Teacher Update 23 November 2018

Dear Parents and Carers

It has been a while since my last update and I wanted to draw your attention to the incredible range of opportunities that our students and staff are engaging in. (more…)

Numeracy

We would like to try and help parents support their children with numeracy skills at home. To get us started we would ask that you to take a few minutes to complete the survey below.

If you are interested in taking part in a focus group to discuss ways in which we could support students with their numeracy skills together, please leave your email address in the space provided at the end of the survey. Taking part would mean giving up a couple of hours, maybe 2-3 times between now and June to meet as a group in school.
