3 S4/5 College Applications (Tues/Thurs pm classes)

If you are intending to apply to college in Column D next year, please ensure you try to apply online before the end of the February holiday week.  Places are likely to be offered on a first come first served basis.  I am aware there have been some issues with the website and the courses saying they are closed.  The college have assured me this is just a technical issue and will be resolved ASAP.  Please keep checking the website and apply as soon as it is available.  Please use the following route to find your course: Schools > Are you still at School? > SCP Programme > SCP Courses.

Please only select a course that was offered on our specific college leaflet as we cannot transport students to various courses across the city. If you need any help, please see your Pupil Support Leader.












4 Ski Trip

A place has become available on the ski trip due to a pupil pulling out through injury.  The trip takes place between 23rd February – 2nd March.  The cost is £950 but you would not be expected to pay before the trip.  Anyone interested in coming should see Mr Harley ASAP as the place will be available on a first come, first served basis.
