Welcome to Portree High School

Our school is a comprehensive and inclusive secondary school, located on the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands; we have 13 associated primary schools throughout Skye and Raasay.

Currently, we have approximately 525 pupils enrolled in the school and 60 teachers, with a staying-on rate beyond into S5 and S6 well above regional and national averages.  Our campus is a new building, officially opened in October 2010, that has been enthusiastically greeted by all the school’s visitors and pupils. The building also houses a number of community facilities including a swimming pool, public library and adult learning centre.
