S1 Kitbags August 2021
The transition team and our Parent Council have been working together to create an S1 Kitbag for all S1 students that will contain many of the essentials you will need in S1.
It will include:
Broughton High School tie
Red T-shirt for PE
Basic stationery kit (pens, pencils, rubber, ruler, sharpener)
This has been kindly funded by the Broughton High School Association through community fundraising and grants. The Kitbags will be distributed to all our new S1 students in August>.

Primary 7 Transition can be both an exciting time for young people but also a time of uncertainty.
Here at Broughton High School we aim to make the Transition process as smooth as possible for all young people who will be joining us. To that end we work closely with our primary colleagues both in our cluster primary schools (Ferryhill Primary, Flora Stevenson Primary, Granton Primary and Stockbridge Primary) but also with colleagues across the city and beyond. Transition working begins in early October and continues through to when the students finally join us in August.
To support students through P7 Transition one PSL and one member of SFL are allocated as links for each of our Cluster Primary Schools. Identified staff will attend Primary CPM’s as appropriate and will liaise with the primary schools on pupil transition. The allocated staff are:
Ms Sharon Brodie, Pupil Support Leader
Ms Zoe Gillespie, Support for Learning
Flora Stevenson PS
Mr Colin Stewart, Pupil Support Leader
Mrs Noemi Gonzalez, Support for Learning Teacher
Mrs Jenna Drummond, Pupil Support Leader
Miss Sally MacMillan, Support for Learning Leader
Mrs Lydia Milazzo, Pupil Support Leader
Miss Sally MacMillan, Support for Learning Leader / Ms Shona Wallace, Depute Headteacher
Please note we are in regular contact with all our primary schools. Any letters relating to transition will also be sent to them directly via their School Admin. Parents are encouraged to liaise with them in the first instance.
