About Earlston High School

Located in the market town of Earlston in the Scottish Borders, Earlston High School is a co-educational secondary school. First established in 1877, it has seen extensive redevelopment and modernisation over the years, and as such can boast of a wide range of modern teaching and recreational facilities. The most recent of these was the construction of a brand-new school building, into which Earlston High School moved in 2009. The school has around 1000 pupils in total, making it larger-than-average compared to most secondary schools of its type.

Education Scotland Inspection

“Almost all young people are keen to learn and actively engage in tasks. They carry out research successfully, tackle practical problems well and think creatively. They work together very well. Young people often use what they have learned to develop informed views and to discuss and share ideas. Young people’s confident use of information and communications technology (ICT) is helping to develop their independence and study skills.”
