About The School Banner Image

Our approach

Our focus is on enabling every pupil to reach their full potential.

Our Integrated Curriculum therefore brings together the academic, the co-curricular and pupil health and wellbeing to provide a coordinated, genuine all-round education with the pupil at the heart. (You can find out more about our Co-curriculum and our Pastoral Care via the relevant headings within the School Life section.)

We are proud of our record of academic achievement, which has seen the School consistently feature in the top ten list of Scottish schools by results, and seen our pupils regularly score the top exam results in Scotland in a variety of SQA subjects.

Central to our ethos is the choice we afford our pupils. By offering a wide range of subjects throughout the Senior Years and not restricting, unnecessarily, the options for our pupils, we give our young people the freedom to make the most of their talents and interests, whilst ensuring they receive a broad education. 

It's not all about exams though. We aim to give our pupils a love of learning that will stay with them, and benefit them, for life. That begins in our Nursery, and is a core feature of our Junior Years, in which our pupils receive an engaging, high quality primary education that provides them with the knowledge, experience and tools to become happy and successful learners.
