About Our School


Eyemouth High School is a rural state secondary school in the Scottish Borders, located in the south east of Scotland.  Our catchment area includes Ayton, Cockburnspath, Coldingham, Eyemouth and Reston.  The current school roll is approximately 470.

In Januray 2019, Eyemouth High School received a very positive school inspection. The inspection team found the following strengths in the school’s work.

  • There is a very positive climate for learning in all curriculum areas. Almost all young people are motivated to achieve well and they work successfully with their teachers.  
  • Guided effectively by the senior leadership team, staff demonstrate clear commitment to improving the learning experiences of all young people. They take part in considerable professional learning. This includes them working well in a motivated learning and teaching improvement group, and using carefully-selected educational research to develop their knowledge and skills.
  • The school provides young people with a wide range of opportunities to help them achieve success. Effective partnership working also provides support for targeted groups of young people who face potential barriers to their learning. This is leading to these young people engaging more positively in their learning.

The full report is available on this website or on the Education Scotland website. 

In June 2019, we were awarded the GTCS Excellence in Professional Learning Award, which recognises the work that we do as a school to continuously improve the quality of teaching and learning for our students.

In February 2020, we have been awarded SEIC Research School status with the South East Improvement Collaborative. This will help us to look even more closely at our learning and teaching using Professional Enquiry, with particular reference to the INSPIRE technology project we are involved in.
