If you would like to get your artwork / photography work back from the SQA they charge £3.95 postage per pupil / subject. If you take both art & photography you will need to pay twice. Please bring your payment ASAP to your art teacher so we can apply to the SQA on your behalf.
We will not get your work back until the end of the year. If you are still at school at this time we will let you know when your work is ready for collection by the usual lines of communication. If you are currently in S6 we will contact home.
