As Head Teacher, I am delighted to welcome you to the new website for Barrhead High School. It has been totally redesigned and brought up to date and provides a significant and growing amount of information about the school and the community.
Barrhead High School is a six year non-denominational, comprehensive school serving the town of Barrhead; it has three associated Primary Schools. The school lies on the outskirts of Barrhead and the present building was constructed in the early 1970s.
I took up post as Head Teacher in August 2010 and currently have 3 Depute Heads in my Senior Leadership Team – Miss Potter, Mr Beaton and Mrs Crawford.
Under the leadership of the Senior Leadership Team, the school aims to promote high expectations and standards for all in an inclusive environment and all are encouraged to strive to achieve their full potential. There is a positive ethos across the school and a high degree of loyalty is shown by staff, pupils and parents, as well as the wider community. Barrhead High School is noted for its caring ethos. Pastoral, learning and behaviour support provision is strong.
The school is also fortunate in having strong parental support. Parents have high expectations of the school and most of them provide encouragement and support for their children. The Parent Council play an active role and offer sound backing to the staff. This backing includes advice, support for school projects, encouragement and financial support.
There is already a great deal of information on the website and we aim to add to that over the coming months. It also provides a number of links to other websites. The website will be updated regularly to keep you informed about events and activities at the school.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any suggestions that would improve our school’s website.
