Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Lossiemouth High School’s website which provides you with a wealth of information about the school.

We aim to raise attainment and achievement and outcomes for all through high aspiration and expectations, developing a culture of self-evaluation and greater partnership working, resulting in positive destinations.

Together with staff, pupils, parents and partners we are developing a new vision for Lossiemouth High School.

This vision will be underpinned by our values – Humour, Effort, Ambition, Respect and Teamwork – which we aim to embed into the daily life of the school.

Our website is a key resource for learning and teaching and for communication with the Lossiemouth High School Community.  We trust that you find your visit informative and enjoyable.


With best wishes.

Changes in the secondary school week

Secondary Schools in Moray have adopted a 33 period week in order to increase opportunities and experiences for our young people, raise attainment and achievement and ensure they are work ready.

The reasons for 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 2019-2020

The Course Choice process for next session has already started with presentations to pupils in S2 to S5. In the new term pupils will attend 'Indications of Choice' events at which they will be asked to identify the subjects and levels that they would ideally like to take next session. This will then allow us to develop a structure for the final course choices which will be made in February 2019.

Our Course Choice booklets are available here for you to download. We have divided the booklets not by Year Group but by Course Level. There are therefore booklets for courses at each of National 1 to 4 levels, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher. It will be January 2019 before the final information about the revised AH courses will be level, so the information in that booklet will be updated later.

If you would like a paper copy of any booklet, please contact the school office.
