SQA EXAMS:  SQA Exams start on Thursday 25th April.  Please note:

*    From Thursday period 5 and lunchtime will swap over. This means lunch will be at 12.25pm and P5 starts at 1.15pm

*    During the exams the morning break canteen will be along by the Pastoral Base

*   No pupils will be allowed in the extension area at morning break or lunch. You must have your break in the main playground.

*  You must keep all noise to a minimum as you travel around school because lots of different rooms are used for the exams - not   just the main hall. This is a vital time for fellow students. Please demonstrate the school value of respect.
