Fantastic Outdoor Opportunity!

Outdoor Learning are running a wonderful trip in June 2015 (after the SQA exams). The arduous journey will be a real character-builder and memory-maker. You will be challenged to complete a 100km journey from Fort William to Aviemore, bagging all nine of Scotland’s 4000ft munroes on the way! The journey is self-sufficient and will be lead by staff from Outdoor Learning. Not for the faint-hearted, but a great opportunity for those of you who embrace a challenge! More info here ( The trip is first-come, first-served. Please apply to Andy Duff via his email in the attached link. Continue reading Fantastic Outdoor Opportunity!

S4, S5, S6 Prelims

The prelim diet will commence on Wednesday 14th January and run until Wednesday 4th February inclusive. Please note that some prelims finish after 3:50pm and will necessitate later transport arrangements.  Pupils with a bus pass can pick up a late bus slip from the Invigilators at the close of an exam; those who do not travel by bus will need to make their own arrangements.  There are also some exams on Friday afternoons – it has always been necessary to use a full day on Fridays to ensure the prelim diet is as efficient as possible.  Pupils should make sure to note times and days of their exams using the timetable on the website here and plan accordingly.  Pupils with any questions should see Mrs Moore, who wishes all senior pupils the very best of luck with their forthcoming exams.  Thank you.
