Aims of the project
Sharing of experience and expertise between private and maintained sector.
Background and goals
For some time now the Headmaster of Merchiston Castle School has tried to foster links with Firrhill High School, Edinburgh. He has visited Firrhill High School on numerous occasions, and the newly appointed Headmaster of Firrhill High School visited Merchiston in September 2016. These links also led to the Deputy Headteacher of Firrhill High School sitting on our Child Protection and Compliance Committee.
The Deputy Headteacher of Firrhill High School is able to share her experience and expertise with us and in turn we hope she benefits from an insight into Merchiston’s policy and procedures in this area.
Frequency and duration
Four times a year on an annual basis.
