    Dear Parents/Carers

    I hope that you all had a wonderful Summer break and a very warm welcome back to school to all of our pupils, new and returning.   Can I thank all parents and carers for the superb uniform, punctuality, attendance and conduct of all pupils since our return.  We are delighted with the superb response to our new blazer for pupils in senior phase.

    Loudoun has had another superb year in all respects and our SQA results increased again at almost all benchmarks in S4-6. I would like to thank all pupils, parents and staff for their hard work in ensuring our pupils succeeded at all levels of qualifications.

    Our Parent Council are holding their AGM this Thursday 4th September at 7pm and all parents are welcome as part of the wider parent forum of the school.  I expect to announce the address of our new twitter feed in the forthcoming week and would urge all parents and pupils to “follow us” where possible.  We hope this will further enhance swift and effective communication with parents.  I anticipate sending another newsletter this month to report on several key events that took place late in the Summer term and our success in SQA exams. 

    As always, please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any queries or suggestions and I once again look forward to working with you all over the next academic year.
