Viewforth High School

Aspiring Together; Achieving Together

Supporting Student Development

Viewforth High School staff are united in the belief that the work they do improves the life outcomes for all of our pupils, including the most vulnerable, and helps our youngsters break free from the cycle of disadvantage. Staff pupil relationships are good. Overall attendance is improving and staying on rates are well above local and national averages. This session over 93% of last year’s S4 pupils have returned for S5 and almost 80% of S5 have stayed on into S6. These staying on rates illustrate the success of Viewforth’s innovative approaches to the curriculum and partnership working in the senior phase.

Increasing Student Opportunities

The ‘spirit of innovation’ permeates all aspects of our work with many teachers taking ownership of new ideas because they see the benefits for young people. The school’s S3 curriculum structure has been showcased nationally as an example of good practice and our partnership working with Fife College has been highly evaluated locally. This encourages those senior pupils in danger of missing out to make informed choices for their life after school by dividing their final year between school, college and meaningful employment.

Communities Working Together

Viewforth High School plays a key part in addressing the “Reducing Inequalities” and “Improving Outcomes for families and Young people” priorities identified in the Fife Community Plan. School staff, pupils and parents have worked closely with elected members, council officials and others to open a new Viewforth High School within the Windmill Community Campus. Our track record proves our ability to innovate and the success of our senior phase augers well for pupils. The commitment of all staff to a holistic approach to raising attainment and achievement cannot be questioned. Our move to new school facilities are coming at the right time to be welcomed by pupils, parents and the wider community.

Viewforth High School is a warm welcoming school that takes real pride in helping pupils achieve their full potential in a whole range of areas. From the moment you walk in, the staff and pupils make sure that you are comfortable and welcome you in with open arms. That’s one of the features that makes Viewforth special.
