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.

We hope that everyone who attended our recent FE/HE Information evening found it helpful. This was the first time we have tried the new format and the feedback on the evening was very positive. We feel we could build on this success and would welcome further feedback to help us deliver a first class event to our pupils, parents and carers.
If you came along to the event, we would really appreciate it if you could find a few minutes to complete the survey below. Positive comments are welcomed as they let us know we are doing the right thing, constructive criticism is also appreciated as it lets us know where we haven’t got things quite right.
Graduate Apprenticeships are work based programmes that enable students to study their degree while they are in employment, so they can work, learn and earn. The scheme is very flexible and is open to both individuals who are currently employed, and those who want to go straight into work after leaving school.
For additional information, please visit: www.apprenticeships.scot/become-an-apprentice/graduate-apprenticeships
Please note that over the summer period there are likely to be a number of opportunities for Graduate Apprenticeships posted on university websites and at https://www.apprenticeships.scot
If you have pupils who would be interested in applying for a Graduate Apprenticeship please recommend that they check websites regularly over the summer holidays.
