Website Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome all visitors to the Balerno Community High school website. I hope that you find the website informative and helpful.

We are a fully comprehensive, non-denominational high school situated in the South West of Edinburgh. The school was built in 1983 and we currently have a school roll of just under 850 pupils in S1–S6. We deliver courses at every level up to Advanced Higher and take great pride in supporting all our learners to achieve their fullest potential.

It is a privilege to serve Balerno Community High School as Head Teacher and having been in post for several years, I am extremely proud of the commitment shown by our staff, pupils, parents and wider community in making us the best school we can possibly be.

Good communication is important to us as a school and the relationships we have with parents, carers and the wider community is vital to the success of Balerno. We value the support of all stakeholders and welcome the support of all of the community.

I hope you find our website supportive. Should you require any further information or clarification, please contact the school office. I look forward to welcoming you to one of the many school events that take place.
