Welcome to Firrhill High School
“Providing learning opportunities of the highest quality.”
I would like to welcome you to the Firrhill High School web-site.
Here you will find information on our school aims and values, our educational provision in its widest sense and our many achievements.
In common with schools across the country we are working to manage the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. The school building is now closed and will remain so until further notice. Please do not send your child to the school building unless you are specifically instructed to do so.
We have been working hard over the last few weeks to move work for pupils online and to make arrangements for learning to continue. For everyone, staff, parents and especially pupils it will take time to get used to these new routines and ways of working. Everyone is trying their best so please bear with us if there are some hiccups along the way.
We will continue to provide guidance for parents in the form of suggested online resources that you may find useful as well as some pointers on how to keep pupils on task and to assist them if and when they get a bit stuck. No parent has to be an expert in every subject. Most of the time the answers your child is seeking are available somewhere and you can still really help by guiding them to find those answers.
We may only be at the very beginning of a protracted school closure. We will all be guided by the advice from the medical experts as to when that situation will change. We are committed to making it possible for pupils to be ready for that return to school, whenever that might be, and we look forward to working with you to make that happen.
Staff, if they are well, will continue to be working from home and you should refer to my updates, available in the Latest News section of this page (below), if you need to contact the school. There are also links to resources and information in the Breaking News section on this page.
The school email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
