Virtual Open Day
We were unable to hold our standard Open Day experience over the last few years, but were delighted to share our virtual open day with you. This short video shows you all that Laurelhill Community College has to offer. As well as getting a taste of the subjects you could be studying, you will also hear from some of our pupils, parents and staff who are here to share their experience of life at Laurelhill.
P7 Transfer: FAQs
Senior Teacher Mrs Beckett and Head of Year 8 Mrs Rea are on hand virtually to answer some frequently asked questions regarding the Transition Process. It is also an opportunity to meet the first of several key staff members who help new P7 students transition into Laurelhill. This is an exciting key milestone for all P7 students and we want to ensure that your child’s transition from primary school to Laurelhill is smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Year 8 Interviews
Life at Laurelhill
Still unsure about the next step – we have interviewed a selection of our previous Year 8 students who are excited to share their experience of moving to ‘big school’. Our Year 8 Interviews look closely at what our students are enjoying most at Laurelhill and they offer some great advice to P7 pupils about the transition process.
