Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Beeslack Community High School website. You will find lots of information about the school if you are a parent, pupil or a member of the wider school community.

Beeslack Community High School is a relatively small secondary school with a school roll of approx 670 pupils. We are smaller than your average secondary school and as a result we know our pupils well. We offer a curriculum which is designed within the principles of Curriculum for Excellence to meet the needs of all of our learners, offers personalisation and choice and opportunities for our young people to develop their skills for learning, life and work.

As well as the formal curriculum we offer a wide variety of exciting extra-curricular activities that develop our pupil’s creativity, talents and passion for learning. We also offer pupils the opportunity to extend their learning beyond school on school excursions and expeditions. We have links with a school in Malawi and have run a number of expeditions for students, as well as trips to Europe.

The school is situated in the beautiful grounds of a spacious 17 acre site and is a highly attractive and inspiring setting for our pupils to learn and develop. As a community school we have strong links and partnerships within the community and we offer a wide range of activities for members of the local area; these include lifesaving, swimming instruction, toddler groups to name but a few.

At Beeslack Community High School we set high expectations for all of our pupils and work with partner agencies to support our young people. We aim to set high academic goals, whilst being an inclusive school that values all of its pupil’s contributions. Particular strengths of the school are the relationships between pupils, parents/carers and staff and the attainment and achievements of our young people.

I hope you find the website informative, however, if there is any information not included on the website that you would like to know or you would like to arrange a visit please contact the school directly.
