Car Park – Drop Off Point

When dropping off children for school could parents please only use the designated drop off zone adjacent to the running track and hockey pitch. Parents using the bus bays, parallel to the front of the school and the sports centre, are restricting access for others and putting children exiting cars at risk. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.            S Maxwell

Eastwood High School Placing Requests

Parents wishing to make a placing request for their child(ren) to enter into S1 in August 2017,  should complete an online placing request form via the East Renfrewshire Council Website.

As you may already be aware, the Education Committee today approved the recent consultation on proposed new arrangements to school admissions, the transfer of pupils from primary to secondary school and placing requests. 

School admissions, pupil transfers from primary to secondary and placing requests will be administered in line with the new arrangements from January 2017 and beyond.  Any placing request applications for school places in academic session 2017-18 submitted before January 2017 will be accepted however, please note that they will be processed in line with the new policy; there will be no need for parents/carers to submit another application.   

Young Scot National Entitlement Card

As of the 1st of January 2017, all 16-18 year olds will be required to hold a newer version of the Young Scot National Entitlement Card to access reduced bus and rail fares. Young Scot and your local authority are working to upgrade as many cards held by 15-18 year olds as possible before the New Year.

Please have a look at your young person’s card. The latest version of the cards have a pink strip over the date of birth.

If the card is missing a pink strip then please visit for details on how to upgrade the card and update your picture.

A replacement can also be arranged through any of the local NEC verification points, full details are on the website.
