As the end of term is upon us, I would like to express my sincere thanks to pupils, staff, parents and carers for all your efforts in keeping learning and engagement going in these challenging times. We never imagined we would have an end of term like this! I will be in touch with you over the summer and please be assured that we have the plans in place to get us back to Linwood High when we are able to do so. More guidance will transpire as time goes on. To our S6 we haven’t said our last goodbyes yet and we will do so as soon as we can. For now I would like to wish all our pupils, staff, parents and families a restful summer.
