Education Scotland

“There were major strengths in the quality of pupils’ learning. Pupils worked diligently in class and showed high levels of motivation. In many lessons, they responded with enthusiasm to their tasks. They readily took responsibility for their own learning and worked well in teams in a range of subjects… Pupils at all stages developed informed attitudes, and useful skills and knowledge in the strong programme for PSHE. The programme included important topics related to health and careers.”
