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.
The primary curriculum is enriched through a wide variety of educational visits both within Glasgow and beyond. These range from the Scotland Street Museum and Science Centre to New Lanark, Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve and both Stirling and Edinburgh Castles.
The School actively encourages parental involvement in children’s learning and welcomes their participation in these visits.
One of the highlights of the children’s Primary school careers is the P7 residential visit to Newlands Adventure Centre in the Lake District.
The children are accommodated in a converted graphite mill, set in extensive grounds in the secluded Newlands valley, near Keswick. The visit usually takes place in June and, for four days, the children enjoy a range of challenging activities including climbing, abseiling, kayaking, ghyll scrambling, orienteering and high rope courses supervised by qualified instructors. Lasting friendships are made and it is ideal preparation for the children’s transfer to the Secondary school where greater independence is expected
