School Closure Update
Thu Mar 1st

The current Amber weather warning for Renfrewshire has been extended until 10am on Friday 2 March, and conditions will remain very challenging into tomorrow. As a result the decision has been taken  to keep all Renfrewshire schools and nurseries closed on Friday 2 March.

As this is the third day of unscheduled closure I would like to remind pupils in the Senior School that the SQA examinatins start next month on Monday 30 April, only 60 days away.  Please use past papers available from the SQA website ( https://www.sqa.org.uk/pastpapers/findpastpaper.htm ) and check Show My Homework where teachers may be posting work for you.
