English Text Collection

Calling all parents of senior pupils, or former pupils.
The English Department would like encourage the reuse of old texts which may no longer be required by pupils after they have finished their course and/or exams.
This will hopefully provide a bank of books that can be used by pupils the following year. For example, if your S5 child bought a copy of Romeo and Juliet last session it can be reused this session. There is a box in the school office where books can be handed in.
Thanks in advance!

SQA Post Results Service

As the name implies, this service runs after candidates have received their certificates. If the school is concerned by a candidate’s result, we can request a clerical check and/or a marking review of the exam paper. There is no consideration given to alternative evidence in this service. We cannot submit alternative evidence of candidate performance to justify any concerns and no such evidence will be considered by SQA in making a determination. The check/review can lead to a change of grade either up or down.

The timeline of events that we must adhere to can be found here. Please contact Mr Heeps if you have any further questions regarding this service.
