Study Help for Senior Students
Exam Booster Sessions
Exam booster sessions have been organised to help with revision. Please see the timetable: EXAM BOOSTER SESSIONS
The Learning Resource Centre (Library)
Our new Learning Resource Centre is available for senior students to use for study during term time from 4-5pm Monday – Thursday. Students will need to sign in at the school office to use this facility.
Common School Day
A reminder that we will move to the common school day from Monday 3 June 2019. Below is a reminder of the new period times:
Home to school transport changes for the common school day will be published on the 20 May 2019. The reason for this is to stop any confusion with the existing routes/services and link with the new bus pass program. Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Bus Use During Study Leave
Pupils are able to use their bus passes any time between 7am-5pm- this will only allow them to take one journey to school and one return, so they will be able to come to school later and finish earlier.
SQA Exceptional Circumstances Consideration Service
This SQA service supports candidates who have been unable to attend an externally assessed timetabled examination, or whose performance in an externally assessed timetabled examination may have been fundamentally affected as a result of an incident beyond their control. The service exists to support only those candidates who have suffered an exceptional circumstance, such as bereavement or a medical condition. If a student is unwell on the day of an examination and cannot attend, a note from the Doctor must be obtained and the school informed immediately. It is always recommended that a candidate sits the examination where possible. Sitting the examination does not exclude the candidate from having an exceptional circumstances request submitted on their behalf.
If you believe that your son/daughter is eligible for this service, please contact Mr Offer on the school number ON THE DAY OF THE EXAM. If you have any question or queries, please contact Mr Offer. Please see the documents below:
Any student who wishes to study in school during this period must sign in and out at the school office for a minimum of half a day at the following times:
- Beginning of school day
- End of school day
Any student signing in to study is required to wear full school uniform.
Please note students who are coming in to school for an examination are not required to sign in or to wear school uniform. Equally, they should not wander around the school between examination papers, unless they have arranged a meeting with a member of staff. Please note also that members of staff may not be teaching in the same areas due to changes in timetable and development tasks, and it is, therefore, always advisable to make an appointment with members of staff in advance.
