SQA Exam Arrangements and Meaningful May 2018

As ever, this part of the school session is a busy and important one for our senior phase students, with SQA exams and Meaningful May both beginning on Monday 30 April.

Each student has received an individualised timetable detailing their day-to-day arrangements from 30 April until 4 June.  For those sitting SQA exams, there is also an SQA exam timetable, and details of special arrangements as appropriate.  Do bear in mind that there is lots of information to support students in the Study Skills and SQA sections of our website.

Please look over these documents with your son or daughter, and become familiar with the important dates and timings for your family.  Be sure to contact us here at school should you require any further clarification or advice. We wish our students the very best with their exams.

We also look forward to working with those who will be attending Meaningful May, our bespoke and exciting programme for those in S4 and S5 who are sitting three or fewer Nat 5 exams.  The programme begins at 9.30am on Monday 30 April, and students should arrive in good time, and with iPads ready.  Meaningful May runs from 9-30 – 2.30pm Mondays to Thursdays, and 9-11am on Fridays until Thursday 31 May. Please note that all students must continue to wear school uniform.

Students who are returning to S5 or S6 will return to school on Friday 1 June to participate in our Induction Programme – further details to follow.

In regard to our S6 students who will be leaving us, we look forward to the S6 Prom which takes place on Friday 22 June.

I’m sure we all anticipate a very happy and successful summer term for our senior phase students.  SQA exam results will be published on Tuesday 7 August.
