The gatehouse caters for 2 young people who are preparing to leave residential care. This throughcare project offers a wide range of opportunities which relate to their future, e.g. financial planning, employment, cooking etc.


St Philip's school offers each young person an Individualised Education Programme, which is designed to identify and support progress towards achievable educational targets. Young people are supported and encouraged to undertake examinations leading to recognized awards.

The Education Department works closely with the In-House Psychological Service and Care Staff in supporting the Educational and Social needs of the young people.

The staff pupil ratio is 1:6 but in reality, with classroom assistants and day support from a dedicated residential care team who also work in classes, the ratio is often 1: 3/4.


The school offer a wide range of subjects including English, Mathematics, Science including aspects of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Social Subjects, Physical Education, Home Economics, practical Craft Skills, Information Technology, Art and Motor Vehicle Mechanics. Individual tuition is also made available in other specialist areas such as music.

A new purpose motor vehicle maintenance learning centre is being constructed partly funded through a grant from the Scottish Government. Learning Support is available to Young People as appropriate.

All teaching staff are well qualified and registered with the General Teaching Council of Scotland (GTC).

All pupils have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which incorporates targets set in all subjects and which is used by teachers, care staff and pupils at regular meetings which monitor progress. The plan is also used to inform parents and carers at Open days and Parents? Meetings as well as external agencies such as social work.

When a young person is admitted to St Philip?s, a proportion of the first weeks will involve an Initial Assessment to establish a baseline and achievable targets for an Individualised Education Plan. Pupils have access to Standard Grade, Access 2, 3 and Intermediate 1 across the curriculum.
