WELCOME FROM MRS OLIVER
It is a privilege to lead Jedburgh Grammar Campus. The children and young people are fantastic and there is something quite special about the atmosphere in the campus, and also the community involvement that led to its inception and continues to provide valuable support.
It gives me great pleasure to be able to welcome newcomers to our campus community. The purpose of this handbook is to share with you information about the campus and we hope you will find the details we have provided useful.
Jedburgh Grammar Campus is a friendly and ambitious environment. We have fantastic staff who are committed to providing engaging learning experiences and building positive relationships with all of our pupils. Our focus is on ensuring that pupils leave school with the best possible chance of future success, in their working lives and personal well-being. We recognise that learning is life-long and our aim is to ensure that pupils achieve qualifications and accreditation, while at the same time developing the skills they need for learning, life and work that will sustain them in the future. Curriculum for Excellence is underpinned by the values inscribed on the mace of the Scottish Parliament: Wisdom, Justice, Compassion and Integrity.
We make our high expectations clear to pupils and encourage them to aspire to be the best they can be. A close partnership between parents and campus staff is of a great benefit to the pupils and we look forward to working closely with you.
We place great importance on helping new pupils settle in quickly. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch

N4-AH Extra Support & Tuition for your Child in S4-S6
This year as we build back from the challenges of the pandemic we will be offering a comprehensive range of supported study sessions during school time, after school and during the Easter break. Many of these sessions will be delivered in school however we are also offering sessions virtually.
It is imperative that any young person who wishes to attend should let their teachers know in advance of the session. Afterschool and Easter sessions will not take place where no young people have indicated that they are going to attend.
We appreciate that for a variety of reasons some young people may find it more difficult to access these additional supports. Anyone who is unable to attend for whatever reason including transportation issues should speak with their pastoral teacher. We will investigate all possible options to remove any barriers to accessing these supports.
