I started in Hamilton College in 2001 in fifth year. Mr Wilson and Mrs Roy in the Art Department were fantastic. I learned so much from both of them and they gave me the confidence to apply for Art School.

Scottish Council of Independent Schools

The Scottish Council of Independent Schools acts as an umbrella body for the sector in Scotland.  It can provide advice for parents on a wide range of issues.

The key aims of the Scottish Council of Independent Schools (SCIS) are to provide information, advice and guidance to parents; advance education via curriculum development and the training of teachers; advise member schools and their governing bodies about educational developments and legislation affecting independent schools (e.g. education, taxation, welfare, health and safety); and to communicate and negotiate with the Scottish Parliament, the Government, public and private bodies on behalf of the independent sector.
