The Junior Honours Reading Party is held at The Burn near Edzell. This is a large old house in beautiful surroundings, with a bar, games room, tennis courts, croquet lawn, etc.
The main purpose is to allow students to practise giving (non-assessed) presentations in a very informal setting - useful practice for the various assessed presentations given during honours. There are also opportunities for outdoor activities, eating and drinking, general discussion, and feedback to staff on likes and dislikes about the School.
The reading party usually takes place during Independent Learning Week. Exact dates for this year are yet to be announced.
