Throughout the year all S6 pupils will have the opportunity to attend talks delivered by a variety of Higher Education Establishments such as: University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, and University of the West of Scotland. These talks will provide pupils with further information which will assist them to make informed choices as to where and what to study. These talks also give pupils a better understanding of the UCAS application process.

All S6 pupils will also attend talks delivered by Blood Donation, Organ Donation, Epilepsy Awareness, Teenage Cancer Trust, Women’s Aid, Domestic Violence, Community Police and Stewart Ivory Foundation all raising awareness of their projects.
