Extra-Curricular Clubs (Miss Crawford)
Active Schools wish to better understand what extra-curricular activities would spark an interest to you once schools move to half day Fridays. Regular sporting activity can help pupils develop their focus, refresh their perspective and provide a break from every day school life.

Please scan the QR code or use this link and answer as honestly as you can, giving thought to each answer to allow for us to plan extra-curricular best suited to the interest of yourself and your peers.


S4-S6: Apprenticeships and Job Opportunities (Mr McCowan)
There are currently lots of apprenticeship opportunities on the S4 and S5-S6 Year Group Teams pages including:

Welding Apprentices
Engineering Apprentices
Graduate Business Management Apprentices
Graduate Civil Engineering Apprentices

These are fantastic, well-paid opportunities which very few pupils even apply for, so are more than worth an application. I will be regularly updating the Teams pages with job opportunities and apprenticeships, so please have a look or pop into C4 for a chat.
