A Modern Place of Learning in the Heart of Glasgow

Rector's Welcome

A personal welcome to the school from the Rector, Mr John O'Neill.

"Children who are happy, respected, secure and encouraged will do well. They will thrive. They will be open to getting involved, working hard and making the most of the opportunities and challenges around them. They will be open to doing their best in every circumstance and to developing a sense of responsibility for themselves and for the needs of others and the wider world.

Here at the High School we are firmly wedded to the belief that to nurture the whole child the values and ethos described above must be provided for within an atmosphere of tolerance, care and positive relationships. These values underpin all aspects of our daily life across classrooms, corridors, expressive arts, sport and beyond. They also allow our young people to have the opportunity to experience an all-round rich and supportive learning environment in which they can develop their potential to the full and are encouraged to aspire for excellence in all they do.

Please do come and visit us, as it is the best way to see how we put the above aims and values into practice. You would be most welcome."

Annual Open Events

The Junior and Senior School Open Events give prospective parents and pupils an opportunity to see around the Junior School at Ledcameroch Road and the Senior School at Crow Road. Staff and pupil tour guides escort visitors around the classrooms and other facilities, giving parents an insight into school life at the Junior School.

The Rector delivers a brief introduction in the Assembly Hall with refreshments available in the Refectory of the Jimmie Ireland Stand following the tour, and staff available to answer any questions. Parents who have applied for places and those considering doing so are all welcome to attend the Open Evening with their children. Parking is available in the playground beside the Sports Complex.
