Athlete Performance Programme

We are delighted to announce that three of our pupils were recently accepted onto East Dunbartonshire’s Athlete Performance Programme.

The school was recently asked to nominate athletes who would benefit from inclusion in a sub-institute of sport programme, the aim of which is to close the gap between school/club representation and the Scottish Institute of Sport. It is hoped those athletes involved will make the step up to the Scottish Institute of Sport's talent ID programmes.

Of over 120 nominations from schools and sports clubs in the local area three of our pupils gained a place.

The pupils selected from Kirkintilloch High School are Callum McCafferty (Rugby), Eilidh Smith (Swimming) and Alastair McDermid (Basketball).
