Gaelic Medium Primary Education is available to anyone who wishes their child to be taught through the medium of Gaelic. This is open to all children whether they can already speak Gaelic or not.

Where you can access primary Gaelic education

There is Gaelic Medium provision at Riverside Primary School, where children are taught solely through the medium of Gaelic. From primary 1 to the end of primary 3, pupils learn Gaelic through total immersion.  English literacy is introduced at the end of primary 3 and from then onwards, literacy skills progression is in Gaelic and English.

Parents interested in accessing Gaelic Medium Primary provision should contact the school for further information. 

Where you can access secondary Gaelic education

Gaelic Medium provision is continued at Wallace High School where young people have the opportunity to progress their learning from S1-S3 into the Senior Phase leading to the award of National Qualifications.
