A reminder of our severe weather policy: https://www.edubuzz.org/dunbargrammar/parental-information/severe-weather-info/
Due to the weather forecast for Thursday we have decided to postpone our Duke of Edinburgh Award’s Evening. We have postponed until Thursday 22nd of March.
To view updated plans, please click here: Expansion Page
As a result of the expansion programme, parking is still severely restricted at the school. This is particularly evident at the start and end of the school day when large numbers of staff and students are arriving and leaving the school premises at Summerfield Road.
In the meantime, it would be very helpful if drivers could reduce their speed when passing the school at the start and end of the day.
It would also greatly help us manage this temporary situation if parents and carers could find alternatives to accessing the school car park when dropping off or picking up students. Thank you for your support in this matter and apologies for any inconvenience during this period.
There are 2 forms to be completed and handed back to the school office, along with 2 passport photographs and European Health Insurance cards by Thursday 1st March.
Calcutta Cup Excitement
On Tuesday, ex-Scotland Rugby Player Andy Nicol, ex-England Rugby player Phil Vickery and the Calcutta Cup paid a visit to Dunbar Grammar School as part of Mitsubishi Motors Calcutta Cup Tour. The players were a hit with the youngsters (and staff!), taking a great deal of time for photographs and autographs after speaking about the history of the cup. Look out for video footage of the tour on social media!
