Teaching in Scotland: Glasgow school 'bucks trend'
September 23 2009
A Glasgow school believes it bucks a trend that has been noticed by education inspectors.
Earlier this month, a new report suggested that migrant pupils in Scotland are underachieving in their studies due to a lack of support and resources.
However, those teaching in Scotland at one Glasgow school, Hillhead High in the city's west end, believe that the school breaks the national pattern, the BBC reports.
Willie Wight, headteacher at the school, said: "We are very much a multi-cultural school.
"We have a roll of more than 760 pupils and more than 200 of them are bilingual learners."
He added that teachers at the school have vision and values noticeable in the provision of services offered to pupils.
The recent report from Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education, argued that children from migrant families take longer to settle in Scottish schools because there is an insufficient level of learning support from staff.
