Welcome to Lossiemouth High School
Welcome to Lossiemouth High School website. I hope that you find the information contained in our website useful. Current information can be found within the school information section accessed from the home page.
Lossiemouth High School is situated in the coastal town that serves the Lossiemouth and surrounding areas. We have approx 550 pupils from the local towns (Hopeman, Burghead, Cummingston, Duffus) including pupils connected to our local RAF Lossiemouth Base.
Pupils are placed into three houses with a Depute Rector as year Head, and a Guidance teacher.The Houses are: Kinneddar, Pitgaveny, and Spynie.
We are a community school and are very proud of our links with a wide range of local partner agencies. Our school values of Excellence, Teamwork, Humour and Respect were developed through our School of Ambition project that finished in 2010. This very successful project focussed on transformational leadership at all levels in the school and community.
A series of lessons on the school values is delivered to all S1 pupils to help pupils understand and embrace the ethos of the school.
It is a privilege to lead Lossiemouth High School and to be supported by such dedicated and enthusiastic colleagues, young people, their families and all our partner agencies. Teamwork is one of the major strengths of the school and I am very lucky to be part of such a hardworking community.
I hope therefore this website is able to give you a small flavour of what we do.

Moray Local Development Plan 2020
Moray Council would like to know your views on shaping the places in which we live, work and spend our leisure time. The vision for the future development of Moray over the next 10-20 years will be shaped by the Council’s new Local Development Plan 2020 (LDP). The Plan is the backdrop to all planning decisions that are made by planning officers and Councillors.
The flyer and letter to parents and carers is available below for you to read and to respond to.
Changes in the secondary school week
Secondary Schools in Moray will be adopting a 33 period week from session 2018-19 onwards in order to increase opportunities and experiences for our young people, raise attainment and achievement and ensure they are work ready.
The reasons for proposing the changes are that they will help us in our ambition to strive for excellence and equity by raising attainment and closing the attainment gap. Changing the school week will give us greater flexibility to develop and enhance the curriculum for all learners. It will give us an increased variety of opportunities for learning and teaching, more flexibility to work with a range of partners and give pupils more options for wider achievement.
Course Choice for Session 2018-2019
The Course Choice process for next session will be on-going over the next few weeks with the new S4 making their choices first. Rather than print a large number of Course Information booklets which all too often go unread, we are publishing the booklets here. For the first time we have divided the booklets not by Year Group but by Course Level. There are therefore booklets for National 4 courses and for National 5 courses which we hope will make it easier for you to find information quickly about the courses on offer.
If you would like a paper copy of any booklet, please contact the school office.
