A Letter from the Rector

Dear Parent/Carer

The Nicolson Institute is a six-year comprehensive school serving the whole of Lewis. The school occupies a large site in the heart of Stornoway and has a roll of over 1000 pupils and over 120 teaching and non-teaching staff.

The School Handbook will give you vital information about The Nicolson Institute that will help to make your child’s time in our school a productive one. We hope you will find it informative and useful.

Our school offers a stimulating and challenging learning and teaching environment for all pupils. Through the high quality delivery of the curriculum, pupils can achieve their potential and will be well prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

The HMIe inspected the school in June 2011.

Well-qualified, committed and experienced staff value our pupils and encourage openness, honesty and respect for themselves and others.

A new purpose-built building opened in August 2012 and the new premises afford us many exciting new opportunities to deliver the Curriculum for Excellence.

We are proud of the many achievements of our present and past pupils and assure you that we will do all that we can to make the school career of your child challenging, successful and happy.

I look forward to meeting you and your child at The Nicolson Institute.

Yours sincerely

Dr Frances Murray
