Glenrothes High School

Rector's Welcome

Dear Parent/Carer,

Welcome to Glenrothes High School. We hope this website provides you with an understanding of our school.  We are a warm and friendly school which places the happiness, safety, health and wellbeing of everyone at the heart of everything we do.

Glenrothes High School prides itself on its positive reputation and strong ethos which is respected and modelled by all members of the school community. To support our young people and prepare them for learning, life, and work, we have high standards and expectations of school dress, behaviour, effort, and attitude whilst aspiring to excellence in attainment and achievement.

We are keen to work in partnership with all parents/carers, staff, employers, external agencies and the wider community to ensure that we are getting it right for every Glenrothes High School (GHS) pupil. We aim for all our learners to reach their potential, enjoy their time at school, whilst improving their life chances and prospects for the future.

To this end, you are always very welcome to discuss your views with us. Should you wish to meet with a member of the GHS team, please do not hesitate to contact us to make an appointment.

We are proud to say that in February 2020, Glenrothes High School’s Inspection report from Education Scotland was published:
