Financial Support

Government Support
Information about benefits and grants can be found here on the mygov.scot site.

School Trips and Activities
The school organises a very wide range of activities that extends well beyond statutory provision. While feedback from parents has been very supportive, we recognise that some families may have difficulty in meeting the associated costs.

Parents may speak in confidence to the Bursar or Depute Bursar about eligibility for support if financial constraints impede your child’s participation in any aspect of school life.

External Activities
Individuals may be eligible for an award within the Pupils of Excellence Scheme which is administered by the Educational Amenities Trust.
