Our S6 pupils enjoyed their Halloween Party on Werdnesday, 28th October. The costumes were amazing and we look forward to seeing them all dressed up again at their Christmas event.
Welcome to Portobello High School’s website. We are pleased to provide those visiting our site with information about the school and aspects of our work. Good communication is important to us as a school and we regard our relationship with parents/carers and the wider community as crucial to the success of the school.
Here at Portobello High School we are committed to providing a challenging and rewarding educational experience. We are a non-denominational, six year comprehensive based in the East of Edinburgh. Our school roll is over 1300 pupils and despite being the largest school in Edinburgh, the House System we operate and our policies and procedures ensure that every pupil is welcome, known and supported.
We pride ourselves in being an inclusive school which offers many and varied opportunities, both within and outwith the classroom, for the growth and development of pupils in our care.

Tuesday, 18th August 2015 saw sixty S6 take part in a Business Education Course on team building and leadership skills. A range of facilitators from the world of further education and business led the day offering upfront talks, advice and challenges. Stimulating and challenging activities gave the opportunity for the new S6 to bond together and a competitive spirit was noted as they battled to build the best bridge or create the best presentation or performance of the day. This was seen as a thoroughly enjoyable experience giving a good insight into the World of Work.
This morning the Council approved the recommendations included in the Outcome of the Consultation report, a copy of which is available on line at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/towerbankconsultation
The catchment changes and the sibling guarantee will be effective immediately and will be part of the registration process for August 2016 which is due to commence soon.
