Life at Lochgelly High School


Student Leadership Team 2020-21

School Captains and Vice Captains 2020-21

It was an exciting start to the term for our learners in S6. A number of young people applied to be part of our Student Leadership Team and Mr Reddington, our new Depute Headteacher, set a series of challenges for learners. Interested parties had to complete application forms, carry out a 'real life' task with our new S1 students, and finally, they had to present to an interview panel consisting of Mrs Aitken (Rector) and Mr Reddington (Depute Headteacher). It gives us great pleasure to announce the young people who were successful in attaining the roles:

Pupil Improvement Committee

Our Lochgelly High school Pupil Improvement Committee consists of a group of twenty four young people. This is an opportunity for our learners to develop their leadership skills on a whole school basis. We have a conveynor who leads the committee and two Senior Phase and one Broad General Education vice conveynor, who were appointed by competitive interview.

The purpose of the group is to:

  • Identify, develop and lead sections of school improvement important to learners in Lochgelly High School
  • Engage the pupil voice
  • Ensure that pupil voice is conveyed to SLT

The group meets with the Rector on a Tuesday lunch-time at least three times each term and also has subgroup meetings outwith these times.

At the start of the session the group worked on the Seven Golden Rules of pupil participation together to get a common understanding of roles and responsibilities.

Areas of School Improvement that were a particular focus during session 2018/19:

  • Safety in and around school
  • School meals
  • Mental health
  • Engaging with S1-S3 learners
