Yes, folks, we’re still here! Like everyone else we’ve had our challenges in the past few months, but we’ve managed to keep going, and we’ve yet again arrived at the time of year when we increase our focus on the search for new students.
In normal times, we hold two Open Days for prospective students and their parents (although anyone who’s interested in what we do is welcome to come along). This year, however, things are going to have to be a bit different, and whatever we do will be online. To that end, we’re canvassing interest from prospective students to see what would suit them best in terms of an evening or weekend session, and what platform would suit them best. The Highland Council uses Google Meet and Microsoft Teams, so they are the best options.
We’re looking at the week beginning 8th February, which could include the weekend of the 13th and 14th, as an initial starting point. The sessions would be hosted by Dougie Pincock, the Centre Director, and will also be attended by Rhona Sharp, admin. Assistant, and at least one former pupil, with the aim of giving you as much information as possible on the many aspects of life at the Centre.
We have also implemented a system of online advisory auditions. If you have already been in touch with us and would like to have an advisory audition, send us a short (5 minute) video recording, which will be followed up with an individual video call in which Dougie Pincock, Director of the Centre, will give you some feedback and discuss whether it would be worth proceeding to a full audition.
The best medium for sending the advisory audition video is WeTransfer.com, a simple file sharing platform, which is easy and free to use. Full details are at https://wetransfer.com/. At this stage, Dougie would just like to hear you playing/singing some music/songs which you enjoy playing/singing. It would be helpful if you could let us have a video by Friday 12th February. All videos should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.Thanks for your interest, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Plockton High School, including Sgoil Chiuil na Gaidhealtachd and the Pupil Residence, was inspected by HMIe in November 2014 and the report was published in February 2015. The overall report was very favourable, and the Music School and Residence were particularly commended.
The report can be viewed by clicking here, and the accompanying Evidence Document here. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our students, tutors, staff and parents for the continuing support that makes such an outcome achievable, and in particular to express our gratitude for the support we receive from our colleagues in Plockton High School and the Pupil Residence.
