Dunfermline High School

Headteacher's Welcome

I am very pleased to welcome you to Dunfermline High School’s website. I hope you find it informative and easy to use. 

Dunfermline High School is a six year comprehensive school with a roll of approximately 1450 pupils. Our current associate primary school community includes Canmore PS, Commercial PS, Limekilns PS, St. Leonard’s PS, Masterton PS and Pitreavie PS. In addition, we work with many families who choose to send their children here on placing requests.  

Within our learning community we are fully committed to providing experiences for every pupil to achieve success, to make friends, to discover new talents and to develop new skills. This commitment underpins our vision of 'Our Learning, Our Opportunities, Our Learning'. 

We have a proud history and a magnificent building but, like every school, the experiences provided for our pupils are the most important element of our school. 

Through our values of Ambition, Respect and Commitment, we strive to ensure that all young people feel safe and happy in an environment that enables them to achieve their full potential and prepares them well for life beyond school, whichever path they choose to follow. To support this, we try to offer the best opportunities for our pupils academically, and in our wide-ranging clubs and activities.

Our school motto, 'don't wish for it, work for it', empowers our school community to be the best version of themselves. Partnerships are key to this, and in fully preparing young people for the future, not least the involvement of parents/carers, and your continued support is greatly appreciated. 

If you require further advice or information please do not hesitate to get in touch as we are happy to help.
