This will provide us with an improved way of celebrating the many achievements (in school and outwith school) of our young people.
This email address is not replacing any of our usual school contact details but is an additional one specific to sharing good news stories. This will create a platform to celebrate even more pupil success through announcements, tweets and newsletters. We look forward to reading the many emails that I am sure will begin to fill up the new inbox in the coming months!
This year in Chryston High we have been carrying out a review of our current S3 curriculum. In negotiation with staff, parents and many of the young people within the school we have decided to make a change to our current curriculum model and move to 9 subjects studied in S3 rather than 11.
Further information on these changes by found by clicking on the links below.
Your child will take part in a mock run through of the options process in the coming weeks but the information gained will only be used to help consider staffing and timetable for session 19/20 in school – this is not your child’s final choices.
Pupils will be issued with their own personal timetables at this week’s assemblies.
The presentation will relate to all aspects of the Scottish Qualifications Authority, the upcoming assessments in December, the final exams in April / May and what takes place in school throughout the academic year to ensure success for all students.
The topic headings from the presentation are:
- Key dates for Communication (reports, parents nights, assessment periods)
- Assessment fortnight (prelims)
- SQA levels, grades and options
- Presentation levels – The process for deciding on the best level for each child
- The role of teachers, parents and pupils
There will also be an opportunity to speak to a member of the Senior Leadership Team at the end of the evening to discuss specific questions. We look forward to seeing you there!

The contract specification is agreed between the North Lanarkshire Council and Strathclyde Passenger Transport.

Pupils have been working in PE lessons to develop their cardio respiratory endurance, navigate between controls on a map and judge their running pace between controls. In Health and Food Technology the S1’s have been learning how to fuel their bodies before sport and replenish energy stores after the competition. Each pupil has prepared food for themselves to eat before and after the event. In Geography, the pupils have been learning how to read a map and use the features of the map to get to the controls in the safest and fastest route.
All of our S1’s are excited to compete in one of our 3 challenging courses. Photos will be published after the event. However, you can follow some of the action on the day via the PE Dept twitter feed at @chrystonpe
There is a welcome evening for S1 parents, families and children on Thursday 3 October from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. Parents will be able to visit classrooms with their children and speak to teachers and pupils about what their children have been learning. Pupils representing the various clubs and committees in the school will be in the social area. We look forward to welcoming you to Chryston High School.
