Blairgowrie High School

Blairgowrie High School currently has a role of approximately 830 young people. Working together we strive to encourage and help all young people to ASPIRE to be the best they can. We aim to provide a positive learning environment for staff and pupils and our school motto is "Learning together today to shape the world of tomorrow".

An opportunity has arisen for a motivated and enthusiastic Pupil Support Teacher to join our team. The Support for Pupils faculty is a successful, thriving provision which is currently growing. The faculty offers support to pupils in mainstream classes, through nurture provision and to a number of pupils in our enhanced provision.

Blairgowrie High School is the sole secondary school for East Perthshire, and covers a wide catchment area of beautiful landscapes. For leisure time, the area offers many wonderful opportunities for outdoor pursuits and pastimes but is close enough to Perth and Dundee if it is city pursuits you are after. To the West we extend almost to Dunkeld; to the North our area stretches up Glenshee past the Spittal, to the border with Aberdeenshire Council; to the East our area extends to the Angus border and finally to the South-East, Tullybaccart – the highest point on the road between Coupar Angus and Dundee – is our boundary with Dundee Council.

Our associated Primary Schools are Alyth, Burrelton, Coupar Angus, Glendelvine, Kettins, Kirkmichael, Meigle, Newhill, Rattray and St Stephen's.
