What the school says...

Happy children quickly develop confidence in themselves and in their learning. At Hutchesons' your child will be cared for, encouraged to ask questions, taught to think independently and have their natural curiosity stimulated. Their learning will proceed at the pace that is right for them and they will be taught in small classes in which they will be encouraged, challenged and supported at all times by our experienced and committed staff. During the Primary years, we encourage the children to see the relevance in their learning, but also to love learning for its own sake. ICT is used to make teaching and learning more active and to add to the fun. Specialist teachers provide expertise that enhances the children's learning in art, music, languages, ICT and PE. Large numbers of children learn and play musical instruments and they have many opportunities to share their learning with a wider audience at our much-loved musical events. Your child's social and emotional development is supported by a curriculum that recognises the importance of health and well-being - physical, social and emotional - both within and outwith the classrooms. Participation in sport at all levels is fundamental to our school and our talented and enthusiastic PE department bring out the best in children whether they enjoy sport for pleasure or at a more competitive level. Children are actively encouraged to participate in lunchtime and afterschool activities like chess, debating, drama, EcoSchools, mini-bridge, musical theatre and Spanish and we are always adding more! The children are expected to take a global view and to support others less fortunate than themselves. There is a natural and automatic progression to the secondary years after P7, although all pupils will prepare for and sit the S1 entrance exams taken by external candidates. ...Read more

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
