Bell Baxter High School is a six-year comprehensive secondary school serving the area of north Fife which centres on Cupar. Nineteen associated primary schools share our Vision for pupils: 'To give the best preparation for life'.

The school's values are rooted in respect for self and others, tolerance and open-ness – we strive to do our best. We aim to be a happy school where success is celebrated.

The school's 1512 pupils and 153 staff are based in modern accommodation. Our facilities are excellent. We have an active Parent Council, Pupil Council and a Prefect system based on self-nomination and selection interview, and Awards Schemes which recognise pupil achievements.

Very good examination results take most of our senior pupils to university or college. An extensive programme of curricular and extra-curricular activities includes opportunities for local and overseas travel.

The curriculum aims to meet the needs of all pupils. Traditional areas of strength in the Social Subjects, Sciences, Mathematics and Arts are complemented by new vocational activities incorporating Enterprise, Technology, Problem Solving and Working with Others.

Pupils, parents and teachers share the aspiration to maintain Bell Baxter as a forward-looking and successful school. Teachers and pastoral support staff work closely with parents to help our young people achieve their best.
