22 October 2018 Deputy First Minister John Swinney MSP opens Elgin High School



On Monday 22nd October 2018 the new build of Elgin High School was formally opened by Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education & Skills, John Swinney.

Although our school has been open to students and staff for a year the final touches were completed as recently as last week. Elgin High School now has a 3G all-weather pitch, gymnasium and high-tech facilities to enable distance learning, in addition to many other first class resources.

Mr Swinney was given a tour of the school by senior students and Head Teacher, Hugh McCulloch.  The 2-hour tour including the sports centre where the Deputy First Minister attempted to ‘shoot some hoops’ in the basketball court with students that were practicing there.

The Deputy First Minister unveiled the plaque in front of an invited audience of senior councilors, staff, students and representatives from the construction teams. As part of his speech Mr Swinney stated how: “The structure of the school creates a central area which has a unifying effect, enabling connections to be made through different parts of the curriculum, adding that “this kind of thinking encourages the teaching profession to look outside the boundaries of their own classroom at connections elsewhere.”

We look forward to using the facilities to continually improve the outcomes for our young people and further support and engage with all members of our local community.

07 January 2019 Information for Parent /Carers on Pupil Support at Elgin High School


Dear Parent / Carer,


Following the recent appointment of Lucia Cunvin-Smith to the position of Principal Teacher of Guidance I am pleased to share that we are now fully staffed with three Principal Teachers of Guidance.

For your information, Mrs Cunvin-Smith is currently our Principal Teacher of Support for Learning and is very busy supporting P7-S1 Transition and students requiring Additional Arrangements for examinations.  In view of this we felt it was best for her to remain in her current position supporting these students until the change of timetable in June.  This means we will be appointing an Acting Principal Teacher of Guidance as soon as possible.


In addition to this, due to a projected increase in our role from August 2019 we will be looking to appoint an additional (fourth) Principal Teacher of Guidance.  The advertisement for this position will be live very soon.


The increase in roll also means we will need to create a fourth House Group in addition to the current Eagles, Falcons and Ospreys Houses.  Students and staff already been informed of this and invited to share their thoughts on how these should be named. I would like to offer the same opportunity for you.  It is an exciting time for Elgin High School and our Student Voice group have been given the responsibility of co-ordinating the consultation. I look forward to sharing more news of this with you in the near future.


In the meantime, if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school.
