Our Community

Scalloway from the air

The school community is widespread and diverse. Scalloway, the ancient capital of Shetland, is a fishing village situated on the west side with a population of 900.

Overlooking the busy harbour is Scalloway Castle built in 1600 and nearby is the Scalloway Museum which is famous for its display on the Shetland Bus.

The village has a number of other facilities including a swimming pool, youth centre, local park and the NAFC Marine Centre.

Castle

The neighbouring islands of Trondra and Burra are connected to the mainland by bridges and many of our pupils come from these islands. Children from the school are able to visit the Shetland Croft Trail, in Trondra, to learn about traditional crofting and boat-building.

Several sandy beaches provide areas of interest for environmental studies and the Outdoor Centre in Burra is ideal for residential stays.

Nesting, situated on the east side, has a more rugged landscape with a spectacular coastline of inlets and small beaches. A thriving community, Nesting is a popular area with a shop, community hall and a new primary school.

Weisdale voeTingwall, Whiteness and Weisdale are more fertile areas and are good places to study wildlife. Attractions include the Bonhoga art gallery, a golf course and one of Shetland's deepest lochs, the Loch of Girlsta. Weisdale Mill
