Woodmill High School



A Message from the Rector

We are Woodmill...

Welcome to our new school website.

Woodmill is a non-denominational, comprehensive school serving the eastern part of Dunfermline.  Integrated into our school is a large department of Additional Support, which meets the needs of young people with a range of moderate to severe learning needs.

As of 2023 the roll of the school is 1432, having increased over the last few years as the Eastern part of Dunfermline has continued to grow to respond to the residential building programme in the Dunfermline Eastern Expansion. 

Woodmill High School sets high expectations for all of its pupils and works with its partner agencies to support our young people.  We aim to set high academic goals, whilst being an inclusive school that values all of its pupils contributions.  As a school we are committed to offering our pupils a wide range of opportunities whether it is as part of the formal curriculum or as part of the broad range of extra-curricular activities and experiences that are on offer.  

We have a strong focus on attainment and our young people enjoy success in moving onto positive destinations in employment, training , apprenticeships, college, and university. Our SQA results are consistently above the Fife average and there is a strong trend of continuous improvement.

Staff give generously of their time to provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and Woodmill pupils enjoy a significant level of success at regional and national level in a wide range of areas. Woodmill has been recognised as the Scottish Schools' Football Association School of the Year, 2020, as well as the Kingdom FM Local Hero School of the Year 2020. 

We work closely with our associated Primary Schools which are Carnegie, Duloch, Lynburn, and Touch, where we are actively involved in the planning and creating of transition opportunities which enhances pupil experiences and consolidates a sense of greater identity within the school cluster.

Over the last 24 months our school and the community have had some challenging times. For Woodmill that started with the fire we experienced in August 2019, that damaged and destroyed a large part of the building. Despite the difficulty that this created for our young people and our school community, our young people, parents and staff came together demonstrating our strength and shared values as a school.

WE are Woodmill.
