Martin Osler from GTCS congratulates Clare McAtear-Logan and Suzanne Foreman of Castlebay Community School / Historic Scotland


Castlebay has formed partnerships with 21 local employers who provide workplace training. One of these initiatives is Hebridean Living, which incorporates Croitear Òg, a new project that encourages learning through involvement with indigenous industries – fishing and crofting. This partnership improves learners’ experience in education and training. This award recognises the success of these local partnerships in engaging with the school as an important part of the local community.
