Dear Parents/Carers

Please find attached a letter which explains the plans for re-opening next week.  I will write to you again on Friday with a detailed update which will cover many of the practical details around returning to school: 4th August 2020

Best wishes

Claire Slowther, Head Teacher

Dear Parent/Carer/Student

I hope you have had a lovely summer break.  In advance of the release of SQA results, I wanted to write to you to share information about the results and appeals process.  Please find attached a detailed letter: SQA Letter

As always, we would like to offer the opportunity for students to be accompanied with their parent/carer to have a re-coursing interview.  This will be with a member of the Senior Leadership Team and will allow students an opportunity to review or change their course choice.   The interviews can take place in school or over the phone. To maintain physical distancing, these appointments will be strictly by appointment only.

The re- coursing times for 2020 are

  • Wednesday 5th August 10am – 3pm
  • Thursday 6th August 1pm – 3pm
  • Tuesday 11th August 12pm  – 3pm

Alternatively, students can have a re-coursing meeting when they return to school (but we are unable invite parents/carers at this time)

If you would like to request a re-coursing interview, please email and we will allocate you an appointment.

Yours sincerely

Claire Slowther, Head Teacher
