One of the requirements of our curriculum is to ensure that we offer breadth and depth throughout the Broad General Education for all pupils in S1 to S3.
In light of this, all pupils in S3 for session 2018-19 will be given the opportunity to study four Deeper Learning courses. Pupils will also maintain contact with all core subjects throughout S3. The core subjects are highlighted on the pupil option sheet.
Click here to find a description of each of the Deeper Learning courses.
Pupils will be able to choose four courses to study throughout S3.
You can discuss these options with your Pupil Support Teacher and class teacher.
If there are any further questions or concerns, you can contact the relevant Pupil Support teacher at any time.
Option forms should be handed in to your Pupil Support Teacher by 2nd March 2018.
We are delighted to announce our annual International Women's Day event to be held on Thursday 8th of March.
We are delighted to welcome a number of inspirational guest speakers including;
Professor Jayne Donaldson Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport from the University of Stirling.
The workshops and class activities will align the key messages of International Women's Day with our school aim of developing character, confidence, courage and kindness in our young people.
The main campaign theme for IWD 2018 is #PressforProgress. Collectively we can accelerate gender parity and our actions can power equality worldwide.
There are still a number of National 5 pupils who have not submitted two English portfolio pieces (one creative and one discursive).
The deadline for submission is 2nd March.
Please note that failure to submit a complete folio by this date may result in pupils being withdrawn from the exam.
Here’s the link for the National 5 / Higher English Folio Template.
Folio pieces should be written in a clear font, size .12 and should be double-spaced.

We held a very successful Careers Fair on the evening of Thursday 8th February.
It was well attended, with over 180 pupils visiting a wide range of stands to hear about courses, careers, skills and apprenticeships.
Most young people were accompanied by a parent/carer, which pupils found helpful in starting discussions with exhibitors.
Well done S3 on being the best attenders, a reflection of the importance of subject choices into Senior Phase.
Before the event, exhibitors were treated to an excellent bowl of soup, followed by scones and R & W Scott jam (thank you), very professionally made and served by pupils from the S2 Hospitality/Cooking elective class.
Reception duties were carried out by a group from the Deeper Learning Administration class in S3.
Feedback from exhibitors has been really positive:
“The kids were so welcoming and friendly, the staff were very accommodating.”
“…would also like to add that the soup and scones were excellent!”
“Great event. We were very busy. If I had one request, it would be a bottle of water at the desk. Pupils and parents were very nice and knew what they were looking for.”
We are recruiting additional invigilators for this years’ SQA examinations in May.
If you would be interested in joining the team, please contact the school office leaving your name and phone number.
Someone will then get back to you with more information.
A wee reminder of the drop in sessions at South Lanarkshire College during Apprenticeship Week, the event will run from Monday 5 - Friday 9 March.
During the week a series of interactive/ informative workshops to promote the schools/college partnership we will be hosted.
Activities on Tuesday 6th March would be ideal for any S4 pupils who may be considering studying one of our Foundation Apprenticeship courses from August 2018, particularly Childcare and Health Care. These would be beneficial for any pupil considering a career in Childcare, Teaching, Social Work or Nursing in the future.
To find out more you can pop along to the College between 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm on Tuesday 6th March.
Activities on Monday 5th March would be great for any Senior Phase pupil thinking of a career in Hairdressing, bring them along at 2 pm or 3 pm on this day to meet with staff, student and employers to find out more.
