Welcome from the Rector
I am truly delighted to have been able to join Hutchesons’ Grammar School.
The school prides itself on its academic results; a record breaking 68.0% achieved an A grade at Higher meaning that over 40% of our pupils gained at least 5 Highers at grade A. This is a direct consequence of our determined focus on developing capable, resilient and independent thinkers.
We do this in an extremely supportive environment with all teachers playing their part to ensure that pupils are flourishing and successful. I am looking forward to contributing to the extremely broad co-curriculum; my forte is remote jungle expeditions, and we have an amazing array of opportunities to satisfy the curiosity and thirst for knowledge displayed by of all our pupils.
We emphasise the values of honesty, respect and compassion in our close-knit and diverse community. Underpinning all of this is a strong work ethic, modelled by staff, that teaches pupils that hard work will bring just reward.
My four children are now in P5, P7, S2 and S3, so if I can help answer any of your questions, please do get in touch. I would be delighted to meet with you and replicate the extremely warm welcome that my family and I have received on joining this wonderful School.
