The Engineering Academy at the University of Strathclyde is holding an early evening information session at Glasgow Clyde College’s Cardonald Campus.  The Academy is a pioneering programme that offers prospective students an alternative route into university and employment as a University of Strathclyde student.  A collaboration between the University of Strathclyde, partner colleges and the engineering industry, the programme offers a pathway to a range of engineering degrees within our leading Faculty of Engineering.  The first year is taken as an enhanced HNC programme within one of our partner colleges and successful completion of this year allows students to transfer directly into the second year of one our eligible engineering degree programmes.
Glasgow Clyde College is one of our partner colleges and we would like to invite you to an Engineering Academy information session which is being held on Tuesday 15th November from 6pm to 7.30pm at their Cardonald Campus.
During the session, you will have the opportunity to meet members of the Engineering Academy Team from both the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Clyde College who will explain the different pathways to becoming an Engineering Academy student as well as the benefits and opportunities that the programme offers.
The session will be open to pupils, teachers and parents.  Please note that places are limited, therefore we ask that only pupils who have an interest in Engineering and are studying Maths and Physics attend.
If you would like to attend please RSVP by emailing Nicola Rorrison at

National 5 Information Evening for Parents

On Tuesday 8 November, we are hosting an exam preparation evening for the parents of pupils studying for their National 5 examinations this session.  The purpose of this evening is to explain to parents exactly what their children should be revising for each National 5 examination and how to do this best.  Letters were posted home for all S4 pupils which contain more important information, a copy of which can be found here.  In order to organise the evening, we require you to complete and return the form by contact the school if you plan on attending, unless you have already returned the completed form by Tuesday 1 November.  This is to allow us to create the sessions for the evening.  A similar event will take place on Tuesday 6 December for Higher candidates.
