Now is the time that a lot of our senior students will be learning about UCAS for the first time In order to support work being done in school we have published a UCAS guide and a college application guide on our updated UCAS/College page.
Please use the resources and links listed on that page to gather all information needed and if any student or parent/carer has any question please direct them to the relevant member of guidance staff or our dedicated Careers Advisor Mrs G Fraser

Our dining room is now operating a strictly cashless system.
Students can order their lunch from a new app FUSION, which can be downloaded now and will be live from Monday 24th August. The app is only for lunch orders and will not be used to order interval snacks. Lunch orders can be placed the night before and must be made before 11am on the day.

We have a dedicated page for all pupils currently in P7, who would be enjoying transition days with us in the building of Marr College over the next few weeks. ALthough we cannot get you all in at the moment we do have some online material being created by departments and support staff to ensure that when you do step through our doors in the purple and gold you know us all a little bit.
Starting today the P7 Transition page has a handy little guide to Marr for you to view or download as well as information for all parents.
It is still very much business as usual at SAAS. The Online Application service is now open and their General Enquiry Unit are dealing with email and voicemail correspondence on a daily basis. Pupils can get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ option in their online account if they have any specific queries.
The Funding Awareness Team were scheduled to attend many schools across the country in the coming months which obviously cannot now go ahead so they are currently working on a toolkit of support available and scheduling online sessions on our Social Media channels which will be shared in the coming weeks.
