Vision, Values and Aims

Our vision, which is shared with our nineteen associated Primaries, is to give all our

young people the best preparation for life and our ambition is to further raise attainment, promote achievement and be an excellent school.

We remain one of the largest schools in Fife with a roll of approximately 1500 and 174 staff including 128 teachers and 46 support staff.  We are also supported by a wide range of agencies, services and partners which include: Family and Community Schools, Psychological and Health Services, Social Work, Police, Careers, Kilmaron School, Friends of Bell Baxter, Cupar in Bloom and local sports clubs and businesses.  The Parent Council is also an active voice in support of the school.

All the resources available to us are focused on our aims:

We can trace our school’s origin back to the 14th Century but our culture, aims and strategies are clearly focused on delivering a learning experience which will prepare all our pupils to participate successfully in the 21st Century.
