S4 Raising Attainment Information Evening

The Holy Cross High School S4 Raising Attainment Information Evening will take place next Tuesday the 27th September at 7pm. All parents/carers of young people in S4 are warmly invited to attend. This evening offers a valuable opportunity to share with you, our parent partners, information about how best to support your young person as they approach both the prelim and SQA exam diets this session. The aims of the night are to share important information about tracking, reporting and pathways planning and to support parents and carers to aid their young people in preparing and planning for the study and assessments that lie ahead. We look forward to welcoming you at the school and hope the evening proves to be a positive and worthwhile experience for all.

For all parents/carers of young people in S1-S3.

Young STEM leaders in S6 will be running a Homework Club after-school on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This will commence on the 27th of September.

The Homework Club will be based in the Maths department, however it will provide support for all subjects. Access to Chromebooks and other resources will be provided for all students who attend.
