Rector's Welcome

A personal welcome to the school from the Rector, Mr John O'Neill.

"Children who are happy, respected, secure and encouraged will do well. They will thrive. They will be open to getting involved, working hard and making the most of the opportunities and challenges around them. They will be open to doing their best in every circumstance and to developing a sense of responsibility for themselves and for the needs of others and the wider world.

Here at the High School we are firmly wedded to the belief that to nurture the whole child the values and ethos described above must be provided for within an atmosphere of tolerance, care and positive relationships. These values underpin all aspects of our daily life across classrooms, corridors, expressive arts, sport and beyond. They also allow our young people to have the opportunity to experience an all-round rich and supportive learning environment in which they can develop their potential to the full and are encouraged to aspire for excellence in all they do.

Please do come and visit us, as it is the best way to see how we put the above aims and values into practice. You would be most welcome."


The High School of Glasgow is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational school with a Christian background, which aims to foster traditional standards and values and a concern for others. During the current school closures our Admissions Team will remain available to answer any questions you may have. Please visit the Admissions Section of the website for more information.
