School information

Craigroyston Community High School is a non-denominational secondary community school serving a catchment area in the north west of Edinburgh.  In the school’s catchment there are 3 associated Primary Schools; Craigroyston, Forthview and Pirniehall.  The Locality is undergoing regeneration with 750 new homes being built over the next 8 years.

The school’s catchment is in a designated area of high deprivation.  Free Meal Entitlement is 40% and one quarter of our pupil body have additional support for learning requirements.  Approximately 10% of our pupil cohort are LAC.  The vision for the school reflects this need and a range of nurturing and inclusive measures (including a zero exclusion approach) have been introduced to best support all young people that attend the school.  We benefit from close links with a range of partners.

The curriculum rationale is to meet the needs of every young person so that when they leave school they have a portfolio of skills, experiences, qualifications and a knowledge of the job market to ensure they enter a sustained positive destination.  To that end the school strongly encourages all young people to stay on at school until the end of S6.  An innovative, aspirational Senior Phase linked to employment, using vocational courses and strong college links as well as traditional subject provision ensures that every young person has a curriculum that suits their needs and ambitions.

The school is firmly committed to raising attainment and promoting achievement. The School Improvement Plan reflects local, City of Edinburgh Council and national priorities.
