Vision, values and aims


Our vision is to ‘raisethebarr’. This means that we support, challenge and inspire every student to achieve the very best they can.

We value relationships and work together to develop resilient and thoughtful young people who are prepared for the future and ready to respond to the challenges of a rapidly changing world. We strive to remove barriers to learning while delivering an aspirational curriculum which ‘raises the barr’ for all.


Guiding us in everything we do are our RESPECT values.








The school’s values permeate the life and work of the school community.  We recognise learners’ successes in living the school values through their actions and choices.


  • We want our young people to be successful learners who are enthusiastic about learning and set aspirational goals.
  • We want our young people to live our school values so that they leave Barrhead High with the confidence to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
  • We want our young people to be active citizens with an awareness of global issues, using their voice to campaign for change.
  • We want our young people to embrace opportunities to develop their resilience and contribute effectively to society.
