- Pupils are entitled to come in to school to study on study leave days but must sign in at the school office so that we are fully aware of who is in the building and must wear school uniform to ensure they are easily identifiable as pupils of our school.
Summer School is a programme of lessons, events and activities which, if completed successfully, will lead to an SQA Employability Award. It is an extremely valuable experience for our pupils and will help them gain employability skills and develop their awareness of the world of work. The programme will include activities to develop employability skills such as planning and organising an event. The Summer School programme will be delivered by a wide range of school staff along with local employers/outside agencies. More details will be provided directly to pupils before Easter.
Pupils who are expected to attend part or all of the Summer School will be contacted directly before the Easter holidays.
Information will also be published on the school exam noticeboard in the dining hall for pupils to check.
All pupils returning for next session should return to school on 30 May for an invaluable 2 day Senior Phase Leadership Induction Programme which will prepare pupils for the demands of the senior phase.
