Welcome to the Secondary School

At Àrd-sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu we strive to support our pupils to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society and eventually the world of work.

At the very heart of our school is the Gaelic language which binds us as a community. We would like all pupils, parents and school staff to be so proud of the language and to work together to ensure it continues to develop in many different ways.

As a school community we want parents to participate in the life of the school regardless of their own Gaelic language ability. We have an active Parent Council who raise the profile of the school as well as support educational developments.

Curraicealam airson Sàr-mhathais Curriculum for Excellence

Curriculum for Excellence is all about bringing real life into the classroom and taking lessons beyond it. It aims to help prepare children and young people with the knowledge and skills they need in a fast changing world. Our curriculum provides space for learning beyond subject boundaries, so that children can make connections between different areas of learning. Interdisciplinary learning can provide relevant, challenging and enjoyable learning experiences and stimulating contexts to meet the varied needs our children. We also take advantage of opportunities to work with partners who are able to offer and support enriched learning experiences and opportunities for young people’s wider involvement in society.

Secondary Enrolment

Moving from Primary to Secondary is an important milestone in the life of a young person and although quite an exciting time can also be a bit daunting. We try to alleviate any anxiety by organising a number of transition activities to familiarise the young person with his or her new surroundings, introduce them to the staff, visit the various classrooms and participate in some class activities.

Reporting to Parents

All young people are assessed both formally and informally throughout the school year. This allows young people and their teachers to identify their strengths and areas for improvement. A variety of assessment methods are used to enable staff to pass on information to parents and carers about the progress of their child. Assessment records are kept by teachers and form the basis of discussion at parents’ meetings throughout the year.

Support for Young People

The school has a duty to ensure that all pupils have equal access to the curriculum, with appropriate support for their needs if required. This applies to the content of lessons, teaching strategies and minor adaptations to the school environment. There are a wide range of factors which may act as a barrier to learning. We are committed to working closely with parents and carers to ensure that they are fully involved in any decisions about support for their children’s needs.



At Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu we strongly encourage all parents to become involved in the education of their children. We are always ready to listen to suggestions for new ways of stimulating parental interest. We contact and involve parents in many ways.
