Transition to the Tutorial College
Our sister college, Basil Paterson Tutorial College, has been providing bespoke post-GCSE education in Edinburgh for decades. The college offers our learners with a direct pathway to education at S5 and S6 level and a chance to continue their education in an individualised learning environment. Their extensive knowledge and experience of both the Scottish and the English education system means they are a natural destination for our Middle School pupils.
In order to help our learners move on to the next stage in their learning careers successfully there is personal careers advice available at appropriate stages of the school year from Inspiring Futures, a not-for-profit organisation who provide impartial and expert career guidance that includes two personal interviews, psychometric profiling, work-related learning and much more. Our Life Skills and Health & Wellbeing courses also raise awareness through careers sessions and introduce pupils to the world of work.
