Safe Community

Our aim at Johnstone High School is to provide a safe learning community where everyone can feel valued and supported.



We want our pupils to be motivated, challenged, happy and achieving their full potential. We want them to be successful learners and effective contributors together with being responsible citizens and confident individuals.


Work in Partnership

We recognise that pupils make best progress when they work in partnership with their teacher, getting involved in planning and charting their own progress.


High Standards

We believe getting the best from pupils depends on engaging their interest . All our teachers are comitted to delivering high quality and innovative lessons.


Parent Power

Parents are valued partners in supporting their children's learning. We also want them to play a part in the development of the school's educational provision.


Charity Work


We think that fund raising for charities is a valuable part of every child's education. The pupils at Johnstone High School support a wide range of charities. Some of them are local, perhaps born out of personal experience, others are national and international depending on what's happening in the world.

News Letter
Helping Others

We believe that fund raising and charity work provide pupils with a valuable opportunity to be part of the local community as a whole and demonstrates a commitment to others less fortunate than themselves.

Fund Raising Activities

Pupils participate in a whole range of activities. Some are involved in national events like Children in Need or Red Nose Day. Other activities can include 'non-uniform' days where pupils pay a fine for not wearing uniform to school. Other activities might include selling items they make or bake.
