Although some school trips leaving yesterday were cancelled as the London incident was a designated live issue with ongoing investigations, our trip does not come into that category. As such, the strong feeling from staff is that the trip should go ahead as planned. There is therefore no change to the schedule and we look forward to another successful excursion for our students. Mrs Brown as trip leader will handle any further contacts.
We’d like to extend a huge congratulations to our Young Enterprise team Handmade Hamilton for their success at the Lanarkshire Young Enterprise finals on Thursday.
Miss Burrell and her team have been working tirelessly throughout the year selling their handmade pens & custom tote bags. At the finals on Thursday they walked away with the Marketing Award and for the first time ever brought the Company of the Year shield back to Hamilton Grammar.
Tuesday 21st March was World Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day and our pupils showed their support by wearing funky socks to school, raising just short of £200. Thanks to all who took part!

As part of a focussed approach to enhance the learning opportunities of our pupils, we will be launching a Friday Study School Programme to support our young people beyond their timetabled learning.

The sign up links for week 1 subjects are now live. Please note the subject focus may not be available yet, please see subject teachers if this is the case.
We need your help!
HGS is involved in an exciting project called Polli-nation which is tasked with adapting our school space to encourage wildlife.
