A reminder that tomorrow is our Sponsored Walk Day!  Pupils should make sure they wear comfy shoes for walking and bring a waterproof, snack and a drink.  You can see a copy of the assembly that the school captains have delivered to all pupils on the link below.

Kaella MacMillan and Isabel Hamilton from the Psychological Services Home Visiting team will lead a discussion on neurodevelopmental differences in the Early Years. They will discuss some of the things that parents and carers may notice in their children, why this may be happening and some strategies to support their children at home
The session will run on Microsoft Teams, and is easy to join from a computer or mobile device, you don’t need to speak if you would sooner not, or have your camera on.

The Council guidance has not changed over international trips and this looks unlikely to move in time for the ski trip. Having postponed for one year already we have taken the decision to cancel the trip for 2022. With so much uncertainty around travel at this time we felt it prudent to make this decision now rather than run into November, December still wondering if we would be able to travel.


We are disappointed not to be able to offer students the opportunity of an alpine experience this winter but we are in a position to cancel with no financial costs for students. All deposits and interim payments will be returned and we are currently working with the tour company on a date for this.


I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news and I sincerely hope that we will be able to offer a trip in future years.
