S1 Induction Day - 11 August 2020

Each new S1 pupil will be placed into a House and a Class. We have four Houses at Grove - Dawson, Gillies, Orchar, and Reres - and each House has 2 classes for S1. The Classes are:

  • Dawson - 1D1 and 1D2
  • Gillies - 1G1 and 1G2

Each new S1 class will be split into two streams, Stream A (morning stream), Stream B (afternoon Stream). The stream your child is to attend will be texted to you before the end of this term.

Each class in a stream will have 15 pupils and each practical class 10.
