Head Teacher Letter

Dear Parent

It has been a busy term and a very busy year in Duncanrig Secondary School. Over the past few weeks we have posted on our school app a series of newsletters detailing some of the exceptional work that has taken place across our school this year. I am sure you will enjoy reading about our achievements and successes over the year. We are looking forward to our formal Award Ceremony in September where we will be able to highlight some of these successes. Before we finish for the holidays please note,

SQA Results

For young people who are awaiting SQA results, these will be delivered to young people on August 6th August 2019. On August 8th 2019 there will be an opportunity to meet with the SLT to discuss any options changes that may be required in light of the results. There will be two drop-in sessions as detailed below;
S5 Pupils should attend between 10-12pm
S6 Pupils should attend between 12.30-2.30pm
Young people should attend to change subjects only, if a change of level is required (higher to N5 for example) this will be addressed when pupils return to school on August 15th 2019.
