Homework Questionnaire

One of our action plan targets for this year was to review our homework policy and consult staff, parents and pupils as to how we could ensure that any homework was beneficial and improved attainment. As part of our review a questionnaire was sent out to parents and over 100 replies have been received. If you haven't yet completed our homework questionnaire and wish to do so then please use the link below and e-mail it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

A huge amount of research into the effectiveness of homework has been undertaken in recent years and for those wishing further information a selection of articles on the subject are available here.  Please note that the views expressed in these articles are not necessarily those of Lochgilphead Joint Campus but are listed to show the wide and varied views on the subject of homework.

The school will shortly be undertaking a trial of a web based homework monitoring system called Show My Homework. Further information will be issued to all pupils and parents prior to launch. General information can be obtained from the Show My Homework Website

Exam Results 2014

Excellent performance from pupils in National Examinations

After an anxious wait our pupils received their SQA results on 5th August. There had been much interest in the first year of the new national qualifications and it was great to see a strong overall performance at both National 4 and National 5 with many of our S4 pupils achieving quality grades in several subjects.

Higher results remain consistently above local authority and national averages, with many outstanding individual performances, and attainment at Advanced Higher was impressive.

Congratulations to pupils and teachers for all of the hard work over the year and thank you to all of the parents who give the school such fantastic support.

Pupil Planner

High School pupils receive a 'Pupil Planner' each year. The planners are issued to all four Clans and each Clan has it's very own 'Cover Design'. This coming August is no exception and S1 pupils were challenged to come up with a 'Cover design' during their art classes.The winners are shown below. Their 'Draft Desings' can be seen in the 'Photo Gallery' or by clicking here...

Pupil Planners are used to record homework BUT...they are much more than 'Just a homework diary'.

They are designed to help pupils Plan, Manage, Record, Review and Set Targets. There are also sections to record a pupil's timetable, teachers, important dates in monthly calendars, activities & interests in and out of school, telephone numbers and personal information. The planner also lists details of the 'School Campus Code of Conduct', 'The School Day', 'The School Year', a list of people who can be contacted for help and guidance, 'Expectations; Attendance, Timekeeping and equipment, Homework, Uniform, Behaviour, General Rules, Code of Conduct and Around the School' along with Hints & Tips on Mind Maps, Maths, English, Science, Geography, Modern Languages, Healthy Living & Lifestyle, Cyber Awareness and Useful Websites.

Eco-Schools

Campus commended by Eco-schools

Our Green Flag award was renewed for a further 2 years at the end of last term and we were delighted to receive a hugely encouraging and positive report from the Lead Assessor:

“The strength of the ethos and the degree of ownership of the Eco-schools environmental management system felt by the students was evident from the wonderful presentations made during the visit. The articulate way your students on the committee described their participation was excellent…The commitment of your staff is a major strength. There is a whole school approach to sustainable development education – through the curriculum, the way the buildings and grounds are run and through the leadership, culture and ethos of the school. The whole school approach means that all departments (Nursery, Primary and Secondary) contribute to a true “community” school. Congratulations on your Green Flag renewal.”
