Alphabet Soup Group


Alphabet soup is a group which welcomes everyone no matter your sexuality or gender.  The group provides a space for LGBT individuals and their allies to express themselves in a safe and supported way. 

The group meets weekly, every Wednesday lunchtime.  We do a range of activities including having chill out sessions, discussing any whole school issues and plan whole-school awareness-raising events.

We are currently working with LGBT Youth Scotland to achieve the LGBT schools charter.  Working towards the charter will help LGBT young people feel safe, respected and included in our school.

For more details about the group please feel free to contact Mr Jeffries.
