Staff and pupils at Falkland House School, which provides education for boys with additional support needs, was visited this week by Mark McDonald MSP.

The school, which has been awarded 10 ‘excellents’ by the Care Inspectorate, making it the highest-rated educational establishment of its type in Scotland, welcomed Mr McDonald and gave him a guided tour.

He then visited the boys in their classrooms to hear about what they were doing in individual subjects.

Director of Falkland House, Stuart Jacob, said: “We were delighted to welcome Mr McDonald to the school and talk through some of our ongoing projects and successes.

“At Falkland we pride ourselves on continuously striving to be the best and maintain the highest of standards. This has been demonstrated by recent awards and short listings but it’s also great to be able to show people first-hand what we’re doing and why it works.”

Mark McDonald said: “I was delighted to visit Falkland House to see the school first-hand and find out a bit more about the work that is going on.

He added: “The school has a strong ethos and it is clear that the pupils are thriving in the environment that the staff have created.”
