Register for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award now!

Would you like to work towards an internationally recognised award?  You could be volunteering within the community, developing new or existing skills and going out on expedition as part of the award.  If this sounds like the sort of thing you’d get involved with then sign up for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

If you’re in S3 – S6 then you can sign up to undertake either the Bronze or Silver, depending on your age, award within the school.  Speak to members of the staff team – Mr McNicol or Mrs Kidson – if you’d like further information.  Alternatively, you can view the participant information and register for award using the links below.

Free school meals & clothing grants, Session 2019-20

Fife Council can provide free school meals and a school clothing grant of £100 per child if households are on a low income.  We would encourage anyone who is entitled, to apply, regardless of whether they intend to take it up – the school’s funding is supported by this.

For further information and to complete the online application, please use the link below.

Online application

It’s worth noting that MyFife cards remove any stigma associated with free school meals for young people as the smartcards are loaded with credit and no one is paying with cash.
