Welcome to Kirkintilloch High School

HTPICWelcome to Kirkintilloch High School’s website. We hope that you find the information herein helpful in providing you with the flavour of the many exciting opportunities on offer to pupils in our school. Here at Kirkintilloch High, we are committed to securing the best possible outcomes for all of our young people, within a context of high quality learning experiences that engage and motivate our pupils. Our ethos is one of unstinting ambition and aspiration, valuing the unique potential of each young person as they experience a challenging and fun curriculum that leads to high academic attainment for all.

This journey through their Broad General Education begins in our cluster primary schools where highly positive relationships have been fostered to pave the way for a smooth transition into S1.  In addition to our formal curriculum, our pupils have many planned achievement activities, enabling them to effectively contribute to their school and wider communities. This approach ensures that we prepare pupils for life and work after school by equipping them to embody the four capacities of curriculum for excellence as we develop our young workforce.

Parental partnerships are highly valued within our school. We recognise the unique role of parents and carers as the primary educators of our young people and strive to work alongside parents to maximise all opportunities for success. In addition to our open door policy for parents, there are more formal opportunities for parents to have a voice in taking the strategic direction of the school forward. This includes our active Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and our Parent Council.

We value all individuals in Kirkintilloch High School, and actively seek to support our young people to reach their full potential. This is a happy school where respect underpins our actions. We hope that you will find this reflected in the information that you see in our website.
