Boroughmuir High School – Sunday Times Scottish State Secondary School of the Year 2018

We are delighted that Boroughmuir has been named as the Sunday Times Scottish State Secondary School of the Year 2018.*

There are 360 state secondary schools in Scotland. To be named as Scottish State Secondary School of the Year for the 2nd time in 6 years is a wonderful accolade for the school and reflects on the incredible hard work and commitment that all our staff, pupils, parents, former pupils and partners put into making our school the great school that it is.

We should all be very proud indeed. Thank you all.

Head Teacher

S1 Parents Feedback – You Said…We Did

Thank you to all S1 parents who attended the S1 Welcome Evening at the end of September.  Since then we have been able to follow up and act upon some of your improvement ideas.  We look forward to seeing you at S1 Parents Evening on Wednesday 14th November.

  • We have opened our library on Wednesday 14th to demonstrate and showcase Office 365 as requested – this will offer more clarity with homework.
  • We have ordered more lockers
  • We are piloting a “Buddy System” for some S1 pupils
  • We are working to improve the pricing in the cafeteria
  • We are going to include more information on clubs for new S1 parents in June

This is a good start to further improve the experience for pupils starting in S1.  Thanks for your feedback.

Please visit the library on Wednesday if you have a chance.  The doors will be open and Ms Aleksandrowicz will be there to help answer any more questions.
