Welcome to the Currie Community High School Website. I feel very honoured indeed to be leading such a wonderful school community as Head Teacher. I have been in post since January 2020 and it’s certainly been a year like no other. Despite its challenges, CCHS continue to go from strength to strength with young people, staff and parents and carers demonstrating an inner resilience and strength that is inspiring. It’s a privilege working with you all every single day and we are only going to achieve great things together, ensuring every young person fulfils their potential being at the heart of everything we do.

Education for me is about endless possibilities and opportunities for young people to build a qualifications portfolio and a skill set that will ensure we best prepare them to lead a fulfilling adult life.  Here at Currie, we strive for excellence in all we do by ensuring that we have a bespoke curriculum that meets the needs of all learners and enables young people to flourish and progress year on year.  We offer a wide range of courses in the Broad General Education through to Senior Phase and an amazing range of wider achievement opportunities also.  We pride ourselves on being inclusive through a strong well embedded positive culture and ethos that permeates across the school community.  Everyone matters in our school, everyone is valued, and everyone has the chance to experience success.

What an exciting opportunity we have to shape the future of the new school here at Currie and I again look forward to working with all members of the school community to influence what our school will look like as a flagship Passivhaus school fit for 21st century education.  More information will be on the website shortly.

The purpose of this web site is to give you information about our school and we hope you find it helpful, especially in these times. Please do not hesitate to contact us at the school at admin@currie.edin.sch.uk if you wish to find out more about the school or to provide any feedback on any aspects of our work.  Good communication is important to us as a school and relationships with parents/carers and the wider community essential to the continuing success of our school.
