Welcome to Currie Community High School

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 is a privilege working with our young peoples, families and our community every day. As a self improving school, 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.  We are strongly committed to Anti Racism practice and our school is one where diversity is widely celebrated.  We have a heavy focus currently on how we continue to promote Equalities practice in our school.  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 we look forward to welcoming the first Passivhaus school in Scotland to our community, very much fit for 21st century education.  We look forward to opening our new school in February 2025.

The purpose of this web site is to give you information about our school and we hope you find it helpful. 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.
