This week S1 (20 are on Tanera, S2 at lagganlia and S3 at Work Experience...have a great time!

Welcome to Ullapool High School

 

Our website is now a year old - with over 12000 'hits' in that time.  We have found it a great way to get information out to the community and to share what is happening in the school (and beyond).  We are still trying to develop the site and if you have any ideas on how to make improvements please use the contact button above.  Some of the site has still to be 'filled out' but we are getting there.  I hope you still find the site informative and useful.

How Scotland Works

As you may recall, BBC Scotland filmed some of our pupils in August and followed them on their long journey to school.  This programme (How Scotland Works ep 3) is now available on iplayer following its broadcast in early May.

 

 

New UHS Site

As the site builds we hope to provide easy access to information across a range of areas.  

Aims - tells you a bit of the history of the school as well as our values

Happening Now - gives a bit more detail of some of the events that appear on the calendar.  A new feature on this page is a 'Youtube' version of the school news, which many of you will have seen running on the screens within the school

School Info - contains policies, curriculum information, reports and parent council information-also contains new pupil area

Achievements - will be a record of significant achievement within the school, you can also let us know of any significant achievement outside of school

Contact - allows you to email us with ideas or suggestions
