About North Berwick High School
North Berwick High School is a mixed, non-selective, non-denominational secondary school with sixth form situated in the seaside town of North Berwick in East Lothian, Scotland. It is a state school. Smaller than average for a school of its type, the school’s latest handbook identifies a school roll of 889 secondary and sixth form students between the ages of 11-18.
With two local schools dating back to the 17th century, North Berwick High School was founded in 1893. There have been a number of redevelopments to the school over the years, the most recent being an enlargement and refurbishment under a Public Private Partnership scheme that finished in 2005.
