Education in its broadest sense is not simply about academic achievement, so Hutchesons’ Primary School offers approximately 33 weekly clubs and societies, catering for all interests and talents, ranging from Technology and Coding to Musical Theatre, Mini- Bridge and Eco/Fair Trade.


Junior Duke


The Mini Duke and Junior Duke Award schemes, which were unique to Hutchesons’, are modelled on the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

These schemes were designed to motivate children in P2-7 to challenge themselves through trying new activities and learning important life skills. The Junior Duke Award was recognised by Education Scotland as an outstanding example of innovative practice and has now been adopted by schools across Scotland.

STEM clubs


Technology

Technology Clubs, give children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products.

Coding

Code club develops computational thinking to solve problems and teaches children how to create games.

Sports Clubs


From P5 onwards, there are clubs for football, netball, hockey and running.

P6 and 7 teams compete in athletics, swimming, rugby, hockey and cricket matches. Our Running Club has nurtured some of the very best cross-country runners in Scotland.

Music & Performance


Kingarth Street comes alive with music during breaks, lunchtimes and after school thanks to its many choirs, orchestras, string groups and ceilidh band.

We also have a talented wind band, rock group and percussion and guitar ensembles. Throughout the year there are many opportunities for pupils of all ages to perform at school concerts, assemblies, shows and informal performance evenings for individual instrumentalists.

Pupils can also be entered for Associated Board and Trinity College music examinations. Primary 3 pupils may audition for the RSNO Junior Chorus training choir and many go on to work regularly with the Scottish Opera Chorus and the National Boys’ Choir.

Charitable Fundraising


Beyond school, children are encouraged to take an interest in global issues and show compassion for those less fortunate than themselves.

Every year primary pupils work tirelessly to raise funds for the school’s chosen charity and Primary 7 organises an annual event in support of ‘Children in Need’.
