This was our last week of Transition Tuesday and here you can find a video from Mrs Urquhart, who is another Depute Headteacher at the school.

Next week you have your 3-day virtual transition and we hope you really enjoy all the activities and tasks on offer, as well as ask any more questions that you may have. We look forward to welcoming you all to Craigmount High School in August 😊.

Today’s Transition Tuesday allows you to explore the school building. Visit different subject classrooms, meet some of the school staff and start to recognise some faces. The school is split over 3 levels so you may want to take some time to look at each level individually.
