Balwearie High School is a large, truly comprehensive, Secondary School situated in the south-west of Kirkcaldy, serving its local community and the towns of Auchtertool, Burntisland and Kinghorn.

Many pupils attend Balwearie as a result of placing requests from outwith the catchment.

The staff, parents and pupils at Balwearie are very proud of the achievements of their school including the performance of pupils in SQA examinations – here are some quotes which reflect the views of our school community:

"Balwearie High School is important to me because despite it being a school for many children, as a parent I feel my child is also recognised as an individual."

"My son is safe, supported and is achieving more than I ever hoped for. The 6th year helpers are a god send, thanks!"

"In the short period of time that I have worked at Balwearie, I feel that, as a teacher, I am a valued member of a community and that the general feeling from the pupils and the teachers is one of pride in their school."

 Parents are encouraged to contact the school when necessary, and attend a wide variety of information, pupil progress and social evenings.
