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 520 pupils enrolled in the school and 41 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.

Promoting Positive Behaviour (PPB)

FAO All Parents,

We hope this finds you well. The examination season is over, and pupils are moving into new classes and starting new courses. At this stage in every year it is an opportunity to recognise that pupils at Portree High School work hard to achieve and meet their aspirations.

As a school, we continue to develop policies designed to support teaching and learning in our classrooms. As part of this we are reviewing our behaviour policy, and developing a Promoting Positive Behaviour (PPB) policy at Portree High School.

To do this, we are carrying out a survey to consult staff, pupils, and parents. It is essential that we have a range of contributions, as it gives us a wide picture of you and your child’s experience of the school. 

  • Please follow the link above to complete the survey. This survey will close on the 29th June 2018.
  • At the end of the survey there is an opportunity to self-select for a further discussion / working group to be arranged during the new term.

(We estimate that it will take 10-15 minutes to complete this survey. However, it will not save any selected options, so you should aim to complete this in one sitting without closing your browser window.)

Thank you for your time. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the school.
