  • Head Teacher’s Message

    Dear Parents/Carers

    My sincere thanks to those of you who attended our Prizegiving Ceremonies on Tuesday, it was great to have you with us to celebrate the achievements of our young people. As we fast approach the last few days, can I advise of some remaining events/information:

    We close on Friday 27th at 1pm and transport will be provided at this time, lunch will only be provided to pupils in receipt of free school meals on this day.

    Blazers are being supplied today (20th June) and as advised, pupils may take these home, provided payment has been received. It is expected that all S4-6 pupils will be in the blazer by August return and you are welcome to pay for, or pick up, blazers over the holidays from school reception. Please do NOT remove tags from blazers until you are happy with the fit, as these will be non-returnable without tags.

    Our joint community fete/ Queens Baton Celebrations take place on Sat 21st June from 12-3pm , we hope as many of you can attend as possible to support this historic event.

    Our Summer newsletter will be published ON THIS SITE ONLY next week and a hard copy can be requested if required from the school office. I hope that you will enjoy reading this issue, which also contains our summary improvement plan for 2014-15. Our office staff will be in touch with parents over the Summer to further expand our list of email contacts, as many parents have expressed a preference for electronic communication.

    Can I take this opportunity to thank ALL of you for your fantastic support of the young people and the school, and I look forward to seeing all of you again in the new term. With all best wishes for a safe, happy and (hopefully) warm Summer.
