If you have any pre-loved uniform, please help us in our commitment to Re-use and Re-cycle, by dropping off to your local collection point:

  • The Corner Cafe 120 Lanark Road West EH14 5NY

  • Co-op 9-11 Corslet Place, Currie EH14 5LS

Preparing for August

In August we would like all pupils to bring their own ‘learning pack’ containing everything they will need to participate generally in classes. Please complete this form to let us know what resources your child will need, how we can help provide some of these for you and what donations you may feel able to make. This also includes uniform. All responses will be treated with the upmost confidentiality.  We want to be prepared to ensure that young people have everything they need and we very much look forward to August.
