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.
Irrespective of when a child joins Hutchesons’, emphasis is firmly placed on fostering the ability to think independently and the resilience and self- confidence to meet challenges in his or her learning.
Pupils are supported in this by a highly professional, dedicated teaching staff committed to ensuring each child fulfils his or her potential.
Our broad-based, balanced curriculum establishes firm foundations for future learning and from Primary 1 pupils benefit from specialist teaching in Art, Music and PE.
A range of Modern Languages is introduced from Primary 4 and these, combined with Latin in Primary 6 and 7, provide an excellent grounding for the study of English and Modern Languages in the transition to Secondary School.
Pupils at Hutchesons’ develop a knowledge and understanding of the wider world through our Science and Social Subjects curriculum and, in addition, the school has an ICT specialist and a full-time librarian, rare assets in Primary education.
At every stage the formal curriculum is enhanced by a varied programme of educational visits, guest speakers and workshop activities.
