Watch a short film about High Flyers 2016
Our High Flyers 2016 students created some fantastic short films within the Media Studies session held at Queen Margaret University.
The students were given a brief entitled 'Theft' and sent off to in small teams to create their films:
You can view the films they created below:

High Flyers is a residential event for students entering S5 which takes place each year in June. In 2016, 40 students attended High Flyers from 13-16 June from the following schools:
High Flyers is run as part of our partnership, with students spending a day in each of the four local universities. University students support the event.
The High Flyers programme includes generic sessions on what being at uni is like and a range of academic workshops. This year, these include:
British Sign Language
Sport & Exercise Science
There is also a social programme, which is designed to bring the group together. Participants will continue to be part of the LEAPS programme as they complete their schooling.
The hope is that the students will be more confident about working towards university, be more motivated and more informed about where might suit them to continue their education. Students will have the opportunity to experience student life and sample different courses.
