A Word from Miss Cook, Head Teacher

21 January 2022

The term is well underway now after two and a half weeks back. Pupils are working well in most classes and the diligence awards, which will be issued soon to all year groups, will give feedback of their performance across their subjects.

The number of pupils bringing their own face coverings to school has risen greatly, so a huge thank you to parents/carers for supporting this. I would ask that pupils continue to attend in full school uniform and, if unable to do so, you contact your young person’s House Team to support this as we have a uniform bank at school with both new and preloved uniform. Pupils should also bring a cosy fleece/jacket should they need this to keep warm in classes (no hooded tops please – including the new rugby training tops). Please can I also ask for parental support in ensuring your young person brings a change of kit for PE for health and hygiene reasons (and also as it is winter they could get very wet and cold when outside in PE).


Support for Learning Leader – following interviews on Monday, Mrs Jenny Wright has been appointed to this post and will start in it immediately. We will now move to advertising the Support for Learning teaching post.


We now have a dedicated section on our website for all things Covid, so please refer to it for the latest information.

S2-S5 Coursing (Learner Pathways)

Given the current circumstances due to the pandemic we are preparing to conduct the coursing process online. Pupils will be emailed information regarding the process, including a Google Form that will allow them to submit their initial course choices. They will have a Coursing Interview via Google Meet with their Pupil Support Leader. Course choices will be confirmed with pupils, parents and carers once all of the S3-6 coursing information is received and we have been able to establish the most efficient way of giving as many pupils their first choices, as is possible.
