Welcome to Portree High School's website.
Our school is comprehensive and inclusive, catering for pupils from S1 to S6. We have 13 associated primary schools, spread across the Island of Skye and Raasay.
Head Teacher: Miss C MacDonald
Deputes: Miss J Scott Moncrieff, Mr T Breen
At present we have 530 pupils on the roll. Our staying on rate is well above regional and national averages.
The school campus is a building which has been enthusiastically greeted by all visitors. The building also houses our wonderful community facilities in The Fingal Centre and include a swimming pool, library and archive as well as an adult learning centre, games hall and performance venue.
Each of our young people is allocated a House. The Support Teachers responsible for these Houses are usually the first point of contact if you have any concerns, issues or if you wish to tell us about successes. We are always happy to publish interesting stories in our monthly Skye lines newsletter.
The houses and teachers responsible are:
E-mail contact is perhaps the best way of contacting them.
