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.

A varied programme of physical education and sport is a key feature of a Hutchesons’ education. This is taught by PE specialists, some of whom are internationalists and Olympians and, from Primary 4, pupils use the first-rate facilities at our Beaton Road campus.


P1 to P3


Infant classes have three periods of PE each week, either in the gym for dance and gymnastics or in the main hall where the focus is on games and the development of spatial awareness and hand-eye co-ordination.

P4 and P5


Primary 4 and 5 have four periods of PE each week. This comprises a double period of gymnastics or ball skills and a double period of games.

Both year groups are also timetabled for swimming on a rota basis.

P6 and P7


In Primary 6 and 7 the pupils have five periods of PE. This time is spent on sports traditional to Hutchesons’ including hockey, rugby, cricket and tennis.

They also enjoy ball games such as basketball and netball. As with Primary 4 and 5, there is a swimming block during the winter months. Pupils in Primary 6 and 7 also have the opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities such as curling and dance.

Primary Teams


Competitive matches in athletics, hockey, cross-country, swimming, rugby and cricket are introduced at the Primary 6 and 7 stages.
