A busy day on Wednesday
Looks like pupils forgot there were Prelims on following the weekend. Quite a few wondering past the “No Entry! Exam in Progress” signs to get to destination. Lets see if we can up our game everyone and leave those sitting Prelims in peace and quiet.
Don’t forget, you can get support from our school website on the Guidance page with links to help for studying, exam prep, exam stress and help for parents too.
Pupils were very respectful towards those sitting their exams throughout the day on Day 1. There was some self-policing and shooshing towards each other when moving from class to class as well as break and lunch time. Well done! Keep that going for the whole Prelim time 😀
Good luck to all our pupils over the next few weeks – prelims run from 17 January till 3 February
There have been a few late changes for prelims which can be found here: https://grantowngrammar.wordpress.com/general-information/sqaexamrevision-information/

Inverness College UHI offers a range of Drama courses from access to degree level, from taster opportunities to the development of advanced practical and analytical skills. The one week Summer School, UHI Drama: Performer Preparation is aimed at young people wanting to try out Drama but who have had limited opportunity to do so. It also supports students intending to audition and apply for Drama courses at Higher Education level. The NPA Acting and Performance is a year course running on Fridays and aimed at senior phase pupils; it offers performance training as well as introducing analytical approaches and production skills, so it is ideal for students interested in theatre but as yet unsure which aspect to pursue. HNC Acting and Performance is offered full and part-time and emphasises key performance skills such as voice, movement and acting and is a tried and tested foundation for further study and/or career progression in theatre. Our innovative degree BA (Hons) Drama and Production is delivered in Inverness and Shetland and entails face to face learning as well as video conferencing and the use of Brightspace, our virtual learning environment. It is a unique performance and production skills focussed degree, based on the premise that a successful career in the sector requires performance, devising, and production skills. The programme aims to exploit the current production skills gap in the sector and has a strong employment focus.
All drama courses are delivered by a team of experienced teachers, academics and theatre practitioners and they offer a progression route taking the theatre beginner to professional performance and postgraduate levels of knowledge, skill and ability.
