Dear Parent/Carer,

Change to School Timetable

Over the past year we have held discussions with young people, parent council, the local education authority and partners regarding the possibility of aligning our school day to other schools in Aberdeen City so that we may provide a comprehensive Senior Phase curriculum more in line with the needs of all of our young people.  This has included pupil, family and staff focus groups as well as a number of consultations seeking feedback and input from our stakeholders.

We would like to thank everyone who has provided invaluable feedback and opinion in order for an informed decision to be made.

The overall consensus and therefore agreed outcome is that we will move to the 32+1 period week, when we change timetable in June 2019 – Monday 3rd June 2019.

The exact school day times are provided below;
