School Closure

The school is now closed to the vast majority of pupils. This is a partial closure and we remain open to younger pupils whose parents are key workers. Following updated Government advice S4-6 pupils will no longer be able to access school to complete SQA coursework and assignments. We are awaiting an update from the SQA but in the meantime we would ask that all S4-S6 do not attend school. For all pupils learning will continue online.
Our Admissions Registrar remains available to assist any parents who would like to enquire or apply for an August 2020 start. Please email admissions@hutchesons.org.

Primary Fairtrade Animation Course


The Fairtrade Committee at Kingarth Street was joined in February by FP and animation tutor, Joanna Susskind (C2002) from Toad’s Caravan Ltd, to learn all about stop motion animation.

Pupils from P4 – P7 were joined by their teacher Mrs Buchan and Head of Art and Design, Mrs Breckenridge, and they managed to create a wonderful video titled ‘Fairtrade story: A Fair Tale’, promoting the importance of Fairtrade cocoa in Ghana.They were also joined by Colleen Tait from the Scottish Fairtrade Forum.

They spent 2 full days in workshops in order to create all props, artwork, voice-recordings and animations to make this beautiful movie come together.

Starting last October, the pupils worked collaboratively to create and produce the heart-warming 4-minute animation which tells the story of a cocoa farmer in Ghana and the positive impact that Fairtrade has on his family and local community.
