Careers Convention- 30th November, 7-9pm

On the 30th of November the school is hosting a Careers Convention with representation from a wide range of Universities, Colleges and Training Agencies. This is a great chance for you to come along and get a bit more advice about subject choices and entry requirements and to make contact with organisations who may be able to help you with your future career path.

There will also be meetings held for each year group  to answer any questions you may have about option choices. This is a brilliant opportunity to ask any burning questions you may have about your future.We hope to see you there.

Thanks,
Miss Horn and Miss Little

EMA Payment schedule 2017/18

The payment schedule shows the dates that EMA payments should reach pupils’ bank accounts and which weeks are covered by those payments. The full schedule can be downloaded by clicking here.

Please note;

  • Pupils will not start to receive payments until their application has been processed and they have received an acceptance letter from South Lanarkshire Council. (Application forms are available in the school office)
  • All S5/6 pupils should have completed a learning contract the induction days in May/June, which also acts as their EMA learning agreement.
  • Please note that pupils will not receive an EMA payment for a week in which they have an unexplained absence or unacceptable number of lates. If a pupil is absent for more than a week please submit a medical certificate or doctor’s letter to their Pupil Support teacher. 
  • If there is an issue with any EMA payments, pupils have been asked to speak their Pupil Support teacher in the first instance, who will check attendance for the relevant weeks.
