SQA Update August 4th 2020
Dear Parent/ Carer,
The SQA are preparing to have candidate certificates sent by post as usual. However, they are also planning contingencies in case public health advice prevents this on 4 August 2020.
They are encouraging as many learners as possible to sign up for MySQA so that they receive their results by text and/or email.
Pupils will need their SCN to do this – this is the number at the beginning of their school email address.
Please check if your child has signed up and if not encourage them to do so to ensure they receive their results by email and/or text on August 4th.
Heriot Watt University Brightest Watts Programme Summer 2020
Heriot Watt University are again this year running their popular Brightest Wattsprogramme next month, which is a completely free initiative for new S5 pupils. Brightest Watts aims to provide an exciting insight into university life, allowing pupils to meet new people, grow in confidence and develop their skills.

- Brightest Watts eWeek – Monday 27 – Friday 31 July 2020 – 2-3 hours of engaging online sessions each afternoon
- Brightest Watts eWeek masterclasses – three online workshops throughout the year running after school (dates TBC)
- Brightest Watts eWeek Residential – Monday 12 – Wednesday 14 July 2021 (3 days and 2 nights) – on campus at Heriot-Watt University
More detailed information is available now at: hw.ac.uk/summerweek. If you think this programme would be of interest to you, please apply by the Monday 6 July deadline.
College Students Update
Edinburgh College are going through the different courses in order to see which will be able to run. They will not be able to give a definitive answer until the school timetables have been finalised. The reduced time that pupils are in school is likely to have an impact on their ability to participate in courses.
There will be no on campus delivery until January 2021.
