WELCOME

Glen Urquhart High School is a six-year comprehensive secondary school with a pupil population of over 200 pupils. The school is situated in the rural village of Drumnadrochit, Inverness-shire on the banks of Loch Ness.

Our school serves pupils from a wide catchment area ranging from Tomich and Cannich in the West to Invermoriston in the South-West. Increasingly we are welcoming pupils from out-with our catchment area. In August 2002 the school and community welcomed the opening of the new Glen Urquhart High School which also houses the Craigmonie Community Centre, Glenurquhart Child Care Centre and Community Library. Our pupils enjoy excellent facilities, a wide range of curricular and non-curricular experiences and an extensive extra-curricular programme.

Our values are: Respect Motivated Nurturing Achieve Relationships and Acceptance. Our ethos reflects these values. Both staff and pupils build respectful relationships that builds the motivation to achieve the very best we can. The school environment is nurturing in that we accept each other’s differences and work closely together as one community. Staff take the time to get to know every pupil and set high expectations which drive attainment and achievement, our students achieve well above the national average. We do all we can, working closely with parents and other partners in education, to prepare our young people for life, learning and work. We hope you explore and enjoy our school website. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have further questions.

Best wishes,
