June Newsletter

As the end of term rapidly approaches we’re delighted to share our final newsletter of the session.

Remember that all previous newsletters are available through Glow.

School finishes at 1 pm on Thursday 28th June and we reopen to pupils bright and early on Thursday 16 August 2018. Senior pupils who are due to receive their results on 7th August should make sure they’re familiar with the Post Results Service information, available here.

SQA Post Results Service 2018

If a school or college has concerns about a candidate’s grade for National 5, Higher or Advanced Higher qualifications, they can request a clerical check or marking review. Please note that results services can only be used if the school is concerned that a marking error may have affected the grade awarded by SQA.

The timeline of events is available here; please ensure you are familiar with the document before the SQA results are released.
