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.
Almost 400 years of experience has taught us that a school works best when it creates a strong partnership with pupils, parents and the local community.
The whole school supports environmental and charitable causes and promotes a caring ethos.
Proud of the diversity of faith and ethnic groups represented within it, the school actively supports its pupils in becoming Global citizens. Pupils and staff are encouraged to take a wider world view, and this is complemented by many strong international partnerships.
From P1 to S6 all pupils are involved annually in fundraising for the school’s nominated charity, chosen by the Charities Committee.
Pupils and staff organise a wide range of events throughout the year, and typically raise well over £20,000.
These positive influences enable children to grow into independent thinkers and at Hutchesons’ their beliefs and passions are reflected in a range of pupil action groups.
Opportunities for pupils to make a difference start early with the fun and friendly Primary Eco Group and extend to memberships of the Secondary Amnesty International, Model UN and J8 societies, in which committed and informed young adults engage in political lobbying for increased human rights and international education.
Across all year groups co-operation and friendships are encouraged by House membership, and this spirit of co-operation is continued externally through community partnerships and local initiatives.
