CyberFirst 2020

The National Cyber Security Centre is delighted to announce that a new timetable of FREE CyberFirst student courses is available and applications for places will be via The Smallpeice Trust website.

In light of the serious impact of the global Coronavirus pandemic and the uncertainty of when social distancing measures will be relaxed, we have taken the pragmatic step of moving our CyberFirst summer courses online. We intend to maintain instructor led lessons which registered students will join daily, via a log in. Each course will run as half day sessions over 10 days where the content will be delivered by QA trainers in our usual fun and interesting way. All of these courses will continue to be certified by SQA and the NCSC.

To allow students from as many schools as possible to participate, we are offering FREE places to 14 to 17-year-old students from your school to attend one of these online CyberFirst student courses.


Children of Key Workers

We will continue to offer a provision for children of Key Workers in school and as such we would be grateful if you could email Deputy Headmaster, Mr Andrew Hall on if you would like your son or daughter to be educated in school.
