  • Brief Description: Finding the right place for your child to learn is crucial to their future. The pressures of large schools can result in young people feeling overwhelmed, unhappy or anxious. Some children require is a smaller, less intimidating learning environment where they will be nurtured personally as well as academically. Basil Paterson Middle School was established to offer a small, safe environment for young people to study towards their National 5s at S3 and S4 level. Central to our educational ethos is the belief that the more time your child spends with their teacher, the more they will achieve. Our personalised programme enables our pupils to overcome the barriers and challenges they may have faced in their learning careers to date.
