Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil’s pol­icy lead for education and life­long learn­ing Coun­cil­lor Rory Colville said: ‘Ar­gyll and Bute schools and education staff have an ex­cel­lent track record in the Scot­tish Education Awards in pre­vi­ous years, in­clud­ing win­ning the cov­eted Head Teacher of the Year award, and I don’t ex­pect this year to be any dif­fer­ent.

‘Our teach­ers are en­thu­si­as­tic and com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing the best qual­ity learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all pupils and are con­stantly striv­ing for ex­cel­lence and to im­prove stan­dards.’

The awards are open to any pub­licly-funded school and in­cludes a num­ber of cat­e­gories.
