Mr McAlpine’s Rector’s Report picked out the elements of ‘excellence’ and ‘change’ and highlighted how recently and over the course of the next session major changes have been and will be taking place. This included the current refurbishment to the school and the excellent facilities it will strive to offer.

He closed by informing pupils, parents and staff of how the school ethos has been evaluated and based on consultation with pupils and staff.
