About Whitehill Secondary School

- United Kingdom
Whitehill Secondary School is a mixed, non-denominational state school in Glasgow, Scotland. This mainstream school is located in the eastern suburb of Dennistoun and is home to students aged 11-18. Whitehill Secondary School is associated with the Learning Community, which includes local nursery, primary and special schools. Whitehill is well-staffed, with 68 staff members and a pupil population of around 485.
The school was founded in 1891 by John Neilson Cuthbertson, chairman of the Glasgow School Board. The school was demolished and rebuilt in 1977 at its present location on Onslow Drive. It was then refurbished and modernised in 2002 as part of a Glasgow City Council project. Whitehill Secondary School now shares a campus with a public swimming pool and sports centre.
Values and vision
Whitehill Secondary School aims to provide equal opportunities for all its students, in particular those with special educational needs and disabilities. Teachers want to empower each child to take pride in learning and maximise their potential, as well as instil in each child the importance of their duties and responsibilities in a democratic society.
The school has implemented a pupil tracking system to ensure each child’s progress is analysed individually. Whitehill specialises in sport and a wide range of extracurricular activities. Staff promote citizenship while providing a balanced curriculum of academic as well as vocational courses.
