Celebrating Success – New Email Launch

We would like to communicate with you a new, bespoke school email address that we would love parents/families and staff to use to make us aware of any success stories about your child/children.

This will provide us with an improved way of celebrating the many achievements (in school and outwith school) of our young people.


This email address is not replacing any of our usual school contact details but is an additional one specific to sharing good news stories. This will create a platform to celebrate even more pupil success through announcements, tweets and newsletters. We look forward to reading the many emails that I am sure will begin to fill up the new inbox in the coming months!

North Lanarkshire Schools Swimming Championships

Competition Report by Dillon Coulson 

Chryston High School Sports Ambassador for Swimming


“On the 2nd of November I attended the NL Swimming Championships with Mrs Walker  and our swimmers.  This was a real motivation for me,  I felt like I was fighting for every gold as I watched each and every swimmer.  It made me feel like I wanted to stick my shorts on and dive in, but unfortunately not. Our Chryston swimmers were high achievers at the competition.
