New House Group

With the addition of a 6th Pupil Support teacher in August 2018, we have taken the decision to add a 6th House Group to Lanark Grammar School. This will take effect from August 2019.

The pupils currently in 1B1, 1L2, 2J2, 3W2, 4H2 and SB3 will all form the new House Group.

Pupils and staff will participate in the nomination process for House Group name and colour.

Parents/Guardians of pupils in these classes are also invited to participate in the nomination process. This can be done through accessing the Google Form link below.

Thank you for your support
