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.
Please contact the school if you require more information.
Members of the Portobello community and friends are cordially invited to the Eco Committee’s annual School Grounds Saturday Surgery. This event encourages the community to get involved with sustainable education at Porty by helping us maintain our bio-diversity garden.
The garden, located by the CDT department, has been a great success and now has several flowerbeds, a sensory garden, picnic benches, rock and stone piles, bird feeder, composters and even some elder trees! Volunteers would help us clear up and maintain these areas, along with the garden fence, making it ready for spring re-growth.
Please bring your own tools and gardening gloves if possible. Hot drinks and bacon / vegetarian rolls will be provided for all volunteers!
Could all pupils who have still to return their Suspended Timetable activity choice forms make sure they are returned to the office by this Thursday (12th March).
Forms must be returned even if you are already booked onto an activity (such as a foreign trip) or are staying in school. If you have any questions about Suspended Timetable, please do not hesitate to contact me.
