Welcome to Selkirk High School
Our aim is to provide an experience that will encourage all students to succeed in reaching their full potential and in doing so develop into considerate, caring and confident young adults.
Revision in a Nutshell –subject guides for learners
The National Parent Forum of Scotland has prepared a series of revision support materials for learners who are about to sit the new National 5 Qualifications. The Revision in a Nutshell subject guides are designed to complement learning and revision in the classroom by:
- sharing the revision material that is available so that young people can easily access key documents and interesting websites
- helping parents to support their children identifying revision materials in different formats eg SCHOLAR, BBC Bitesize, YouTube videos by teachers, PowerPoint presentations on school websites collaborating with education partners to deliver learner-centred resources
The Revision in a Nutshell subject guides cover 20 of the most popular subjects.
Selkirk High School Inspection Letter
Please find attached the letter from Lead Inspector, Mr Din, detailing the outcome of the inspection carried out week beginning 6th January.
I am delighted that the report acknowledges our many strengths, and the positive impact these have on pupil attainment and achievement.
I am particularly pleased that Inspectors confirm that pupils feel safe, have a positive attitude to learning, and are performing above the national average, and well above in some areas. In addition, high quality support and the benefit pupils gain from an extensive wider achievement programme are testimony to the hard work, dedication and commitment of staff, pupils and all who work with us.
Reassuringly Inspectors are confident that we have the capacity to progress without further visits from them. We will therefore continue to develop teaching and learning, the curriculum, and our quality assurance procedures as planned.
If you have any queries or would like to comment on the report, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.
In the meantime, thank you for your continued support.
