The school serves a very broad catchment area within Clydesdale. In addition to the pupils who live close to or in the town of Lanark, large numbers of our pupils live in the wider Clydesdale area and use school transport to travel to school.
The school strives to give all of our pupils the best educational experience possible through the quality of teaching and learning, the range of courses available to suit individual needs and also through an extensive array of extra-curricular activities. The staff of the school are highly committed and do all that they can to support each and every pupil.
Partnership with parents is a very important to us and we shall take every opportunity to engage with parents to assist us in supporting their children. When such a partnership exists it enables all of those involved to work collaboratively with a sense of shared commitment and a desire to provide support and direction of the highest quality. Our partnership with parents is also illustrated through our School Board and Parent Teacher Association, both of whom provide great support and encouragement to the staff and pupils of the school.
The school strives hard to create an ethos of achievement and inclusion and promote positive values in all that we do. Through focussing on enabling pupils to become successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens we can instil in pupils a commitment to their own learning and achievement. In addition, we can help them to gain an understanding of the importance of their contribution to the wider community, and the need for them to play an active and positive role within it both now and in the future. We also strive to promote a culture of inclusion and respect for others where talents no matter how diverse are recognised and celebrated. Our commitment to inclusion is also illustrated through our Additional Support Needs base where pupils are fully integrated into the life of the school both curricular and extra-curricular.
