Enrol for Gaelic education

We offer a Gaelic medium class and pre-school class at Whitehills Primary School in Forfar.

The Gaelic medium unit occupies its own classroom, but is very much part of the whole school community.

The children join the rest of the school for assemblies, school trips, specialist teaching, playtimes and general activities.

Parents are strongly involved in the work of the class and the wider school, and there is close collaboration with the Gaelic teacher.

The aim of Gaelic Medium Education is to achieve competency in both Gaelic and English.

By the end of primary seven, children educated in the unit will have completed the curriculum and also be fluent in Gaelic.

Primaries one to three are the 'total immersion' stages in which all teaching is done through Gaelic.

In the last term of primary three, English reading and writing are gradually introduced.
