Liberton High School is a medium sized comprehensive school situated in the South of Edinburgh. We cater for students from age 12 through to age 18. Our students come to us from around the city but mainly from our associated Primary Schools which are:

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming school, which caters for all students.

In the coming months and years it is our ambition, that through working closely with parents, staff and students, Liberton High School will continue to build on the excellent progress made in recent years and become a renowned centre for learning. We will do this by listening to, and working closely with, parents, students and staff and by ensuring that traditional values such as wisdom, honesty, integrity and respect underpin all that we do as a school.

Additionally, it is my firm view, that we should emphasise the standards of discipline and dress that we all associate with a great school.

Our main aim is to provide the highest quality of learning and teaching that promotes achievement and attainment. To do this, we provide a very wide range of opportunities for young people.

What makes us unique?

The top ten:

  • Commitment and dedication of staff
  • High levels of expectation for staff and students
  • Information Communication Technology provision
  • Extensive range of extra-curricular clubs and activities
  • Free provision of comprehensive study support programme and Easter revision school
  • Tradition of excellence in Music
  • Tradition of excellence in Sport
  • Development of an extensive sports and inter-house programme
  • Range of activities to promote language and literacy (e.g. annual themed Book Week)
  • Quality of vocational guidance and career opportunities

I hope that you will enjoy reading our web pages.

If you would like to find out more about our school, please do not hesitate to contact me either to arrange a visit or to receive a school prospectus.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Extremes of fashion

In general terms, we would expect all our young people to maintain a sense of decorum. By way of example, we would not expect to see bare midriffs or shoulders. As in previous years, we will continue to tackle areas of concern with sensitivity and on an individual basis.
