Any pupils with queries regarding their SQA timetable should report them to the school office before close of school Friday.

Mrs McGlashan will deal with any issues on her return to school next week.



A reminder that all PC forms must be handed in today to confirm places on the team.  Students must see Miss MacLaine at break time if there is an issue.


Lost and found

Items of clothing left in the PE department will be donated to charity this weekend.  Any pupils who wish to check through lost and found items should do so today.

Night at the Musicals – Friday 20 April, 7pm

Our NPA Musical Theatre class is performing their ‘Night at the Musicals’ Showcase this coming Friday 20th April at 7pm. Tickets are £5 (adult) & £3(concessions). The class has worked incredibly hard and this performance is an accumulation of everything they have done throughout the year.
To help us raise funds for next year, we are hoping to hold a raffle (or tombola – TBC!) on the night. If you have any unwanted gifts etc kicking around, we will happily take them off your hands! If you have anything you can donate, please hand it in to the school office or the music department.

Dalkeith High School – Ranked Top in Midlothian

Dalkeith High School is the top-ranked Midlothian secondary school!

According to the recently-published list of the top performing state secondary schools in Scotland by The Times, Dalkeith High School is the top-ranked Midlothian secondary school with our nearest competitor ten places below us.  The list has been compiled using data on attainment at Higher level supplied by Scottish Government and compares performance between schools with similar catchment areas.

Dalkeith High School has also made it into the top third of the table of all state secondary schools in Scotland – the only Midlothian school to do so.

Well done Dalkeith High School!
