Welcome to Arran High School

Dear parents, carers, students and members of our school community,

It is both an honour and a privilege to welcome you to our website as the new Head Teacher of Arran High School, Lamlash Primary School and Early Years Class.

Arran High School has a proud tradition of academic achievement and we are fortunate to have fantastic facilities, a very committed group of staff and young people who work hard and achieve well. I am aware of the strong foundation on which we have to build, whilst acknowledging that there is work to be done to make our school even better.

I believe it is our job as the Arran High School community to create an environment in which every young person feels safe and secure, enabling them to achieve the very highest standards in everything they do.  That is what I want for my own children and I want to apply that same standard for every young person in our community.

Working together with you, I very much look forward to supporting the development of skills, knowledge and attributes in every young person, enabling them to confidently and successfully take a full part in the life of our community and beyond.  I can assure you that I will do everything I can to provide the very best learning opportunities and have the highest aspirations for every young person in our care.

I aim to apply the highest standards and expectations to everyone who has a role in supporting the learning of our young people.  I trust and hope that you will apply these same standards to me and that together we can take the Arran High School learning community forward to new heights of excellence in the coming years.

Barry Smith
