Pre-prelim assessment diet – 25th October to 5th November

To help prepare our S4 learners for the prelim diet of exams in January, we will be running a pre-prelim assessment diet over a two-week period.  These will run during class time and young people will be issued with a timetable in advance to help support their revision at home.   The timetable for this assessment diet can be accessed using the link below. We will also post this on the S4 year group team.


Saturday Study Breakfast Support 

This year we will offer our ever-popular Saturday Study Breakfast Support – this will run weekly from Saturday 11th September to the end of November.  Young people must sign up in advance using the glow form which will be posted on their S4 year group team each week.  The sessions will take place from 9.30am until 12.00pm.  Staff will be in attendance to support and young people will have the opportunity to work in a quiet and supported environment.
