Success Stories:

Each year, Mrs Cook and Mrs E Smith collaborate with The Rep to give pupils the chance to write, produce and perform a dramatic piece Onstage @ The Rep. 

We normally work with pupils from S1-3 to create a dynamic group, allowing pupils to work beyond their place of learning with peers they would not normally work with.  The pieces the pupils have devised have truly been outstanding and all pupils have experienced success working with this project.
