Guidance Staff

When pupils join the school they come under the care of a member of the Guidance Team. This teacher is responsible for all aspects of life affecting the education of the pupils in their group. For this purpose the school is divided into six houses by surname.

This means that where parents have more than one child in the school the same member of the Guidance Team will deal with all members of the family. These teachers are the main link between home and school. Pupils should not hesitate to ask advice or discuss a problem with their Guidance teacher. This is particularly important at times when the curricular choices have to be made i.e. in Second Year and Fourth Year. There is close liaison between the Senior Management Team and the Guidance Team. Parents are encouraged to contact the appropriate member of the team with any general concerns. A convenient contact time can then be arranged. Parents may also wish to contact the Guidance team or members of the Senior Management Team by letter.  The Guidance Team is as follows:


Burns House (pupils with surnames A - C in S1 - S6) Mr J. Rushworth, Principal Teacher of Guidance

Fleming House (pupils with surnames D - G in S1 - S6) Miss McAlister, Principal Teacher of Guidance

Kelvin House (pupils with surnames H - L in S1 - S6) Mr I. Brown, Principal Teacher of Guidance

Macdonald House (pupils with surnames Mac - Mc in S1 - S6) Ms J. McSherry, Principal Teacher of Guidance
