Welcome

Dear Parent or Carer,

It’s my pleasure to welcome you to Lesmahagow High School. I hope that this website along with the extensive information available in our school handbook provides you with all of the information that you need about our school.

At Lesmahagow High School we emphasise an ethos of challenge, encouragement and enjoyment with a focus in doing so on our core values of AspirationRespect, CompassionHonesty and Fairness. We want all our young people to realise their full potential in all aspects of school life. We are very proud of the wide range of learning opportunities and pathways we provide for our young people. This is supported by an extensive programme of wider-curricular activities.

We stress the importance of a purposeful and ordered working atmosphere, where our young people are safe, valued and secure. We aim to develop successful partnerships with parents and our wider community for the benefit of all of our young people. In doing so we acknowledge your continued support and the hard work of our committed parent council and our successful and developing partnerships.

We try to set and maintain high standards so that our important values of respect and compassion are understood by our young people in their widest context. This allows us to work well together to ensure successful learning and achievement for everyone at Lesmahagow High School.

You are welcome to get in touch with us about any matter relating to your child’s education here or the wider school and we always welcome your suggestions and comments.

Kind Regards,

Richard McGowan, Head Teacher
