Study Leave Masterclasses – Deadline @ 5pm on Tuesday, 16th April

Just a reminder that S4-S6 pupils only have until 5pm on Tuesday, 16th April to register their attendance for a Study Leave Masterclass – just over 24 hours to go!  Register for the Masterclasses using the link below.

The Masterclasses aim to support pupils in S4-S6 prior to the final National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher exams.  Pupils must sign up in advance to attend a Masterclass to allow the school to allocate the appropriate number of staff to support each session.

Please note, the Masterclass for National 5 English will now run on the 2nd May, with the sessions for National 5 and Higher Dance now having their individual slots.  Philosophy are also running a National 5 and Higher session as part of the programme.

Easter Revision Programme – Final programme

Pupils should check the programme carefully as there have been a number of changes to the original programme as a result of pupil demand.

Please note the following:

  • Music and German now only have one session each available.
  • The Spanish sessions will now no longer run.
  • The high demand for National 5 has resulted in Mr Hall offering to run three two-hour sessions.  Pupils should check the lists outside of Mr Hall’s room and/or the LRC to find out which session they should attend.
  • Likewise, Ms Headrick will post a list of participants outside of her classroom door for the National 5 Biology session.

Masterclasses will run during Study Leave providing pupils with another opportunity to undertake some supported study in the run up to the exams.  Masterclass information will be released later today.
