Music Summer Schools

These are taking part at Wiston Lodge as follows: Residential Week 3-8 July £250; 17-19 and 20-22 July - FREE Tinto Tasters, located at Wiston Lodge and facilitated by Hands up for Trad.

It's a great opportunity for local children & young adults, particularly those who show musical potential but whose parents can't afford lessons or whose circumstances might prevent them from accessing these kinds of opportunities as well as placed for children who are interested in / passionate about music, particularly traditional Scottish music.

Ideally they would have had some musical experience but fluency in an instrument is not a requirement.

For Tinto Tasters they have to be 9 years and there are two courses running back to back in July...all tuition, supervision, food and lodging paid for. Parents concert on conclusion!

For the full week-long Tinto Summer School children need to be aged 12 +. This is an amazing experience and is for established musicians wishing to develop their traditional music ability – paid and bursaried places available.

For more information and to book children onto the courses, please go to:  or their website: Tinto Summer Schools

HT Open Forum - May 2017

As a school we consider we have a very inclusive and open door policy with regard to communication on any school related issues. In addition to the above general availability, it is my intention to set aside specific time once per month after school as I know parents/ carers can sometimes find it difficult to manage to school during daytime hours. This open forum will run from five o’clock until six o’clock. If there is an issue or area of school life where you require further information or want to share your views please contact the school to agree an appointment time and I will be happy to meet with you to discuss further at this time.

The next drop in is planned for Tuesday May 2 from 5pm to 6pm.
