NBHS Active Schools Facebook page

We now have a North Berwick High School Active Schools Facebook page.

We will use this to post information about sports and activities at North Berwick High School.

Hopefully it will provide a useful communication tool for pupils and parents to keep up to date with activities on offer, and to give feedback on activities that they’d like to see on offer.

Search for ‘North Berwick High School Active Schools’ on Facebook, and ‘like’ our page.

School Dress Code

There is an increasing number of girls wearing leggings/jeggings/black jeans to school. As you know, these are not permitted under our Dress Code as they are  deemed to be much too casual for school. Quite a few boys are also wearing jeans. Pupils are being reminded of the Dress Code in assemblies this week, and through a message in register folders. 

I appreciate that some of you may not agree with our approach, but the Dress Code was agreed by pupils, parents and staff following a consultation some years ago. It has been adapted since then with the addition of black shirts, as requested by the Pupil Council. I am seeking the support of all our parents in ensuring that every pupil follows the Dress Code.  That way, clothing ceases to be an issue and our conversations in school can focus on what really matters – learning!

Many thanks in anticipation of your support

Lauren Rodger, Head Teacher
