NBHS Receives GTCS Excellence In Professional Learning Award

North Berwick High School receives the GTCS Excellence in Professional Learning Award!

I am delighted to share this news with everyone in the North Berwick High School community! We were very honoured to be nominated for this prestigious Award by Fiona Robertson, East Lothian’s Head of Education. Having reviewed the nomination, the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) agreed that our submission merited a visit by a GTCS Panel. This visit took place on Tuesday 21 May and, as you will see from the attached report, it was a very rigorous process indeed. The Panel met many staff, pupils and partners throughout the day; their activities included hearing a presentation from the senior leadership team, visiting classes, holding twelve focus groups and reading key documentation. In recognising the school’s excellence in professional learning, the Panel noted key strengths under the following headings:

  1. The Professional Standards (GTCS)
  2. Leadership of and for learning
  3. Learning by enquiry
  4. Learning that deepens knowledge and understanding
  5. Learning as collaborative.

I have always known that the staff at NBHS are passionate about their own learning as well as that of their pupils; I have also always known that our young people absolutely embody our values of curiosity and diligence. It is lovely, then, to have this recognised by the GTCS Panel. I am so proud of our whole school community!
