Education Scotland

“Young people achieve across a wide range of contexts. At all stages they volunteer, help others and develop a broad range of sporting, musical, personal and life skills. They deal with progressively more challenging situations as they move through the school. Staff contribute a great deal to the life and work of the school. They organise various clubs for young people and involve them in regular fundraising activities.”
