Welcome to Lochaber High School
The website contains a range of information about the school, and I hope this provides you with a worthwhile introduction to our ambitions for our young people and our community. At Lochaber High School it is important we value and respect each of our young people and that we recognise and further develop the knowledge, skills and qualities they bring from our respective primary schools.
As a learning community we wish to promote a culture of high ambition, and high achievement and attainment as well as mutual respect for all. I believe strongly in meeting the needs of all our young people, providing the highest standard of education, and actively encouraging success now and into the future. As you will see from our social media links we want our young people to have fun and enjoy their learning within and beyond the classroom and as such we encourage participation in a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. As you see below our young people gain success and recognition in their participation in local and national competitions.
Do not hesitate to contact the school if you need more information.
Mr Steele (Head Teacher)
Tha raon fiosrachaidh mun sgoil air an làraich-lìn, agus tha mi an dòchas gun toir seo beachd math dhuibh mu na h-àrd-amasan a th’ againn airson ar n-òigridh is ar coimhearsnachd. Aig Àrd-Sgoil Loch Abar, tha e cudromach gun cuir sinn luach air gach neach òg fa leth is gun toir sinn spèis dhaibh. Tha e cudromach cuideachd gun comharraich sinn agus gun toir sinn an tuilleadh leasachaidh air an eòlas, na sgilean is na feartan a bheir iad leotha bho na bun-sgoiltean eadar-dhealaichte aca.
Mar choimhearsnachd ionnsachaidh, tha sinn airson cultar de dh’àrd-amasan a chur air adhart, a bharrachd air coileanadh is buileachadh aig ìre àrd agus spèis do gach neach. Tha mi a’ creidsinn gu làidir ann a bhith a’ coinneachadh nam feumalachdan fa leth aig gach neach òg, a’ toirt seachad foghlam aig an ìre as àirde, agus a’ brosnachadh soirbheachas an-dràsta agus san àm ri teachd. Mar a chì sibh bho na ceanglaichean againn air na meadhanan sòisealta, tha sinn airson ’s gum bi spòrs aig ar n-òigridh agus gun còrd e riutha a bhith ag ionnsachadh taobh a-muigh is taobh a-staigh an t-seòmair-theagaisg, agus mar sin tha sinn a’ brosnachadh com-pàirteachas ann an raon farsaing de chothroman neo-churraicealach. Mar a chì sibh gu h-ìosal, bidh ar n-òigridh a’ soirbheachadh is a’ togail cliù tro bhith a’ gabhail pàirt ann am farpaisean ionadail agus nàiseanta.
Na biodh maill oirbh fios a chur chun na sgoile ma tha tuilleadh fiosrachaidh a dhìth oirbh.

Lochaber High School is celebrating “Diversity Month” from Monday 6th June to 30th June (end of term).
We are committed to creating an inclusive school environment where every young person can be themselves and thrive. It is a chance to explain to all of our students the importance of diversity in the world for which we are preparing them. We would like to recognise and celebrate all of the differences that make our LHS community and learn from each other in the process.
Whilst we understand that a month alone cannot tackle all of the world's issues, we hope that our Diversity Month is a great opportunity to start having meaningful and worthwhile conversations where we learn to celebrate our differences.
This diversity month will focus on: celebrating the vast array of languages which represent the different cultures of our Lochaber High School community; celebrating the neurodiversity of our school and learn about autism, ADHD and dyslexia and finish by celebrating LGBTQ+ pride week.
We appeal to our pupils, parents and members of the community to fully support this important opportunity to make LHS as an inclusive environment as possible for all young people. Please encourage your child to check out the displays; participate in Tutor Support and have the conversations which will lead to mutual understanding and respect.
Please watch the video for more information.
