As Headteacher at Dumfries High School, I would like to welcome you into our school community. Our vision at Dumfries High School is to provide enjoyable learning opportunities and an environment where all members of the school community are encouraged to reach their potential.
At Dumfries High School not only are we committed to providing the very best educational experiences and opportunities but also to develop our young people as leaders and responsible citizens who will make a huge difference to the school community and beyond. We work in partnership with our parents and carers, our associated primary schools, members of the local community, other partners in learning and most importantly, our young people.
The website has recently been re-designed and we hope that you like layout and more importantly find it easier to access. As you can see from the extensive menus the site offers you a wide range of information about life in the school. We do our best to ensure that the material on the site is always current and we are continuing to develop the range of information provided.
Practical advice like important dates in the school calendar and details of our school uniform is always available for quick reference. In addition any general letters that are issued to pupils are always posted on the site just in case they don’t make it home. Parents' newsletters are also available for you to read.
Information is provided on subject departments and the curriculum they offer. Arrangements for supporting pupils are also described as is the work done in cross-curricular areas. Information on extra-curricular activities and on the important work done by our Parent Council is available. You can also access useful links to other educational websites.
We regard our website as a key aspect of our partnership with pupils, parents and the local community and we are determined that it will make an important contribution to the high quality educational experience we offer at Dumfries High School. Please enjoy the site and if you have any observations on how we can improve it, please get in touch.
