A Word from Mrs Ingham, Head Teacher

26 August 2016

At assemblies this week I have been sharing various bit s of information with pupils. With S1 to S3, I have been talking about the “Student Evaluation of Education” survey that is completed by S2 every year. The results from last year’s S2 were interesting, gratifying and thought-provoking by turns. There are various things that the pupils feel we should be improving, so I have challenged them to come to me with some ideas for how we do that. I will be spending time with the Pupil Council looking at these ideas so that we can work together to make the school a better place for all pupils. I had the huge pleasure of sharing our results with the S4 to S6 pupils. I wanted the S4 to know what they are aiming for and to congratulate the S5 and S6 as well as showing them what they have to do over this session. I am confident that, with the pupils’ hard work, parents’ support and teachers’ tracking and monitoring that we will succeed.

Talking of success…I was delighted to hear...
