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.
At Hutchesons’ we are very fortunate to offer specialist teaching to pupils from a very early age.
A number of our teachers work across both the primary and secondary schools which provides great continuity and challenge.
At Hutchesons’ pupils from pre-school onwards receive specialist teaching in art, music and PE.
In the upper primary stages the pupils also have specialist classes in a wide variety of modern languages and Latin as well as ICT, the latter is in a fully outfitted, state-of-the-art computing suite. At regular intervals throughout primary pupils visit the science block in the senior school for topic specific teaching from science teachers.
We believe that having access to specialist teaching from an early age benefits the children greatly and allows them to gain a greater depth of knowledge in the subjects. It also helps with the transition process from primary to secondary.
