"Aspiring to excellence and improving life chances for all"
Glenrothes High Schoolis a 6-year non-denominational, co-educational, comprehensive Secondary school of approximately 810 learners. We are committed to inclusive education. We are one of only 5 Secondary schools in Scotlandto have attained Rights Respecting Schools Award status based on the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). We have also been awarded the ‘Intermediate Internationalism’ Award from the British Council for our International partnership with Bangladesh.
We provide secondary education for young people aged 11-18 years in a relatively confined area of central and north Glenrothes. We have strong links with our 4 associated primary schools (Caskieberran, Pitcoudie, Rimbleton and SouthParks) - whilst each year attract a large number of placing requests (approx.25%). The Department of Additional Support (DAS) - caters for the needs of pupils with moderate and severe learning difficulties and continues to enrich our inclusive, Rights Respecting secondary school with over 50 learners integrated in GlenrothesHigh School.
We offer an extensive curriculum at all stages and are currently embedding the transition to “A Curriculum for Excellence”. In later years we offer courses leading to national awards at National 3, 4, 5, Higher and Advanced Higher. We have strong curricular links with local colleges (particularly Fife College), and potential consortium arrangements with the two other High Schools in Glenrothes allow enhanced option choices for senior students, particularly at Advanced Higher level.
At Glenrothes High School (GHS) we set increasingly higher expectations for all of our pupils and work with partner agencies to support our young people. We aim to set high academic goals, whilst being an inclusive school that values all of its pupil’s contributions. We have an active and supportive parent council, known as the Parent Partnership Group who are strongly supported by our local Councillors and elected members. Our School Quality Improvement Plan (SQIP) for session 2015-16 is closely linked to the Glenrothes Community Area Improvement Plan.
