Gaelic Medium Education

Gaelic-medium education, which aims to give children the opportunity to become fluent in Gaelic, has been an option in Comhairle nan Eilean Siar schools since 1987 and is now the default choice, while allowing parents to opt for English-medium instruction. 

Recognising the many benefits of bilingualism and the importance of Gaelic in Western Isles culture, Sgoil an Iochdair supports Gaelic learning for native and non-native Gaelic speakers alike.
