Welcome to
Inverkeithing High School

"... the highest values and standards..." 

Lindsay A. Roy

Inverkeithing High School is held in exceptionally high regard by much of the surrounding area.  It has the best 'track record' in the area and prides itself on the facilities it provides to students.  Some of the more specialised areas of the school include:

A Very High Standard Physical Department with its own Swimming Pool, Gymnasium, Basketball Courts and many other areas.  

A Very High Standard Science and Home Economics Block with many rooms dedicated to Cooking, Physics, Biology and Chemistry.

A Very High Standard Computing Department with many rooms fully equipped with computers and other digital equipment including Digital Cameras.

Our Goals

Inverkeithing High School has been entrusted with the educational development of young people from our catchment area and beyond between the ages of 11-18. This prospectus is intended mainly for parents, and this section sets out the aims and values that underpin everything that happens in this school.

In essence, at the top of our agenda are quality and standards, and we aim to tap the unique potential of every individual to the full by:

o       promoting personal excellence in academic, athletic, creative, and technological work.

o       creating a disciplined and enjoyable environment in which effective learning and teaching can take place.

o       providing a caring, friendly and healthy environment in which young people feel valued as individuals.

o       rewarding student achievements and encouraging pride in all aspects of school work.

o       encouraging students to develop self discipline and responsibility.

o       preparing students effectively for the world of work beyond school, and for participation in a democratic society.

o       developing a close partnership between home and school.

o       emphasising that learning is a lifelong process.

The school seeks to achieve these aims by:

  o       setting high but realistic expectations for all of our students, encouraging them to work hard and do their best.

o       making the most effective use of the human and physical resources available.

o       creating a firm, secure, friendly climate where students are encouraged to show respect and tolerance.

o       offering the widest possible range of experiences and activities, encouraging students to "be all they can be."

o       arranging regular contact with parents.

o       implementing rigorous monitoring and evaluation procedures.

In summary, we believe that all individuals have the right to a high quality of education suited to their abilities, aptitudes and needs. The school is fully committed to the Pursuit of Excellence and to improving high standards.


Normally, under the auspices of the school, students have the opportunity to participate in the following sports:

Aerobics/Step              Hockey             Tennis             Netball             Athletics

Orienteering                  Badminton       Rowing             Basketball       Rugby

Cricket                         Sailing             Football             Swimming         Golf

Gymnastics             Volleyball                     Angling/Fly Fishing

Some students are honoured by being selected to represent the school at sport and some have gone on to represent their country at school or senior levels. Students who play for school teams are expected to reflect pride in the school by wearing their normal uniform, and to conduct themselves in a manner which will bring credit to themselves, their parents and the school.



Through close liaison with our associated primaries, contact with students is established before their enrolment at Inverkeithing High School. During primary 7 our staff visit primary schools on a regular basis and students will spend two days with us before starting school in August.

All class teachers take an interest in student welfare, and many of them are register teachers who will be in daily contact with your son/daughter (51 -56). In addition, there is a team of promoted Guidance teachers whose special concern is to give help and support to each individual student. The school is organised into four Houses, Abbey, Castle, Palace and Tower, with a Guidance team attached to each house. when each student enters the school he/she will be allocated to a House and Guidance teacher and will remain with the same Guidance and Register teacher throughout his/her school career.

Guidance staff play a key role in meeting individual student needs

  - through giving advice about course and career choice and through attending to matters of a personal nature. They will monitor progress, behaviour and attendance and support your child in realising his/her full potential.

Guidance staff will communicate with parents regarding the above or any aspect of your son/daughter's education which is causing concern.

If you want to discuss progress with his/her Guidance teacher, please telephone or write to arrange an appointment. If the matter is urgent please say so and we will arrange to see you as soon as possible.


All students in every year group follow programmes of study in Personal, Social, Religious and Moral Education as part of the formal curriculum. The aims of these programmes are:

... to emphasise our common commitment to values such as honesty, justice, tolerance, respect for others, compassion

... to encourage students to make informed choices/decisions.

Within Personal and Social Education, students study careers education, health and sex education, relationships and other social issues. In Religious and Moral Education, topics include the ideals and values of Christianity, Issues and Beliefs, and other world religions. Various teaching strategies are employed and classes are of a size to encourage meaningful and open discussion.
