The high school opened in 1995 and was the result of a long successful campaign led by area parents for a new school. Prior to 1995 area children went to high schools on the East Coast and stayed in local hostels.
This is the ideal time to look again at the film “Puts Eton in the Shade” which chronicles the school’s first week.
The first regular meeting of 2016-2017 was held on 6 September 2016 after the Annual General Meeting. Regular meetings take place once a term. Click below to read or download the minutes of the first meeting.

The school held a “Wear Gold” Day on 9 September 2016 with a bake sale and payment of £2 for the privilege of not wearing a uniform. The event raised £290.50 for the Kayla’s Fundraiser campaign, which is raising money for various charities that have supported Kinlochbervie Primary School pupil Kayla and her family during her long illness.
More information about Kayla’s Fundraiser can be found in a recent Northern Times article:
