If you haven’t done so, we are encouraging parents and carers of our new S1 pupils to read and complete the school’s acceptable use policy for ICT before the start of term: see below for link. Once signed off, pupils will be able to access the school network to support their learning.
The policy sets out the expectations of pupils when they are using IT facilities within the school. Parents, carers and pupils should carefully read the policy and submit the form acknowledging that they understand its contents and agree to our expectations; pupils’ responsibilities will be covered again in class.
ICT acceptable use information and form
Good luck to all of our young people receiving their SQA exam results tomorrow. We hope all your hard work throughout the session has paid off and you get the results you deserve.
Further information about Results Day from the SQA is available here:
SQA Results Day Information
We are however aware that some of you will have worked just as hard as others yet be disappointed with the results you have received. This may mean that you need to make changes to the courses you were planning to take in session 2019-2020. If this is the case then further information is available on the school website here:
Post Results Course Changes
If things have not gone as well as you had hoped and you think that there has been some kind of significant mistake in the marking process, for instance if a result is considerably lower than that expected or estimated then further information is available at the link below. If a University or College offer is dependant on a result then you should carefully consider the information on this page before completing the form.

Well, we’ve made it to the end of a very busy academic session. We welcomed Ms Penrose as Rector in August; we saw our pupils head up The Polar Academy; we held our inaugural Senior Sportsman’s Dinner; the U18s football team swept all before them; our partnerships with business and the wider community were strengthened through a number of initiatives; we worked closely with our cluster primary schools; our pupils starred on the stage at the Byre Theatre; pupils participated in the Scottish Learners’ Panel, and our pupils achieved success in a number of activities at local, national and international level.
We’ve enjoyed every minute of the session and hope that you’ve enjoyed sharing in the achievements of our pupils and staff. We hope everyone has a great summer and we look forward to welcoming everyone back in August.
You can see all of our videos on the Bell Baxter HS YouTube channel.
Last night saw the Senior Awards Ceremony marked the end of the school year and our celebration of achievements for our senior pupils. It is always inspiring to share some of the incredible things that our young people manage to do during the session.
Thank you to The Polar Academy’s, Luke Robertson for being Guest of Honour on the night.
The “unseasonably” bright night meant that our photograph didn’t quite turn out how we planned!
We would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of everyone, to wish you all a fantastic summer!
Congratulations to all of the pupils in S1 – S3 who were awarded prizes at last night’s Junior Awards Ceremony. It was terrific to see the achievements of all our young people, and the hard work of our staff, being celebrated at this prestigious event.
We would like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ Hazel Robertson, Explorer-in-Residence for the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and member of The Polar Academy, for agreeing to be our guest of honour. Hazel talked to our pupils about her experiences and how these translate into other areas of her life – very inspirational!
