Senior School

The High School of Glasgow Senior School is an ambitious and rewarding place of learning, an academic institution that prides itself on putting pupils' needs and interests at the very heart of our teaching strategy.

The High School of Glasgow Senior School is an exceptional environment for a young person to continue their educational journey, offering an all-round education which creates memorable learning every day.

We champion the highs and learn from the lows, instilling the importance of community and encouraging innovation. Our world is changing at an exponential rate and we arm pupils with the fundamental skills required to succeed in this ever-changing landscape. Our talented and engaging staff are passionate about the subjects they teach, igniting the spark of lifelong learning in our pupils.

High School pupils consistently achieve outstanding academic results while, away from the classroom, our numerous clubs and societies, creative arts and sporting offering, and focus on pupils’ health and wellbeing equips learners as they prepare to step out into the wider world beyond the school gates.

Our main point of entry is Transitus, our Primary 7 equivalent, which provides a head start on the curriculum and the chance to experience life in a Senior School environment a year earlier than most. We have found this to be a significant advantage to our young people in their learning journey, but we welcome new starts at any stage through to, and including, our Sixth Form.

I look forward to welcoming you to Old Anniesland to see for yourself what The High School of Glasgow can offer your child.”
