INTRO TO COLLEGE GROUPS

The next campus visit for the Intro to College group is TODAY – Tuesday 7/1/20 to Granton Campus to avoid hitting the start of the prelims on 14 January.

The plan is to meet at 8.30am at bottom of main stairs and that we should be back at school for usual lunchtime arrangements.  Pupils will be registered there and a list of attendees will be provided to the school office directly so you do not need to go to registration but if you are there, please come and meet us NOW!

Pupils will be asked to check in with their teachers about what has been missed. Apologies for any inconvenience caused and thank you in advance for your support with this.

There will then be one final session for this group in school on Tuesday 14/1/20 with the exception of anyone sitting a prelim that day.

Group 2  (dates 21/1, 28/1, 4/2, 18/2, 25/2 and 3/3)

Could these named pupils please come and see me with their completed paperwork ASAP.

Please let me know if there are any issues with any of this.

Regards, Ms McLennan
