Hello and "Welcome" to the Portree High School!
Our school is comprehensive and inclusive, catering for pupils from S1 to S6. We have 15 associated primary schools, spread across the island and Raasay.
At present we have 660 pupils on the roll and about 60 teachers. We anticipate that next session there will be 125 pupils in first year. Our staying on rate is well above regional and national averages.
In mid-2008, PHS will move into a brand new building which is currently under construction on the same site under a Public-Private Partnership finance arrangement. The building will include under the same roof wonderful new community facilities including a new swimming pool, a new library & archive, and an adult learning centre as well as a new games hall and performance venue.
A consortium including the School, Council, School Board, Friends of PHS & Community Facility Interim Management Committee, is coordinating an informal consultation to obtain stakeholder views on what the new facilities should be called & how they should be operated. The school is changing in other ways too. The School Board will shortly be abolished and replaced by a new Parent Forum - what form should it take? Should we have a new school uniform? The school is implementing an Action Plan following the recent HMIE report, and a new vision is being proposed for the school. The school wishes to hear your views.
The feedback from this consultation will be submitted to the Education Committee of Highland Council who have ultimate responsibility for any decisions made.
