Here's an aerial view of Out Skerries, in the Shetland group. The school there is not only small, but is that rare phenomenon, the all-age-school. Its new headteacher left suddenly earlier this term. The next stage in the saga appears in today's issue of The Herald. The image below is of one primary level pupil in the school playground on the island. When he is old enough to 'move' to the secondary stage, there will be, if pupil numbers remain the same as at present, two others with him.
