After School Activities


ALL pupils should check that transport home is available for you to get home after your activity.  Please check if the bus leaves from the square or the High School.  If you get a bus and then a taxi it is likely that the taxi is not available to meet a later bus and you will have to make your own arrangements.


Make sure to let your parents/carers know that you intend to take part in activities.


School Uniform

At PHS we expect all pupils to wear school uniform within the school day. All school uniform may be purchased from Highland Schoolwear in Inverness.  Ties and badges can be purchased from PHS reception.
