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


The Scots Verse and Music Competition 2020

P3 – P7 pupils marked Burns Night with the start of the annual Hutchie Scots Verse and Music Competition.

Many pupils took up the challenge to learn a Scots poem by heart to perform in front of their class.

Each class in turn put forward pupils for a year stage final and from this successful pupils were selected for a place in the Primary Final held in February.

In addition, pupils from P7 were selected to perform musical pieces.

Throughout the competition exceptional self-assurance was evident from all those participating. During the final, the watching audience were excited to support their fellow pupils and all the performers handled the pressure with calmness, confidence and clarity.

The competition saw pupils pupils perform to a very high standard. The invited guests were Head of Music, Mr Rhodes and  Former Head of Primary, Ms McPhail and they were judging the Music and Verse respectively.

Well done to all the finalists:

P7 Coco, Nicholas, Zara, Rebecca, Marni, Myles, Beth, Sally Bah and Murray

P6 Amelia, Felix and Aryan.

P5, April, Haris and Louise.
