  Welcome to St Modan's High School Website


This website is moving so is no longer being updated.

Check out our new site at 




St Modan's is a Catholic Comprehensive

High School.


As a Catholic school we are committed to the education of the whole person spiritual, intellectual, social, moral and physical. We are comprehensive in the sense that we welcome all who wish to be part of our community.

                       The Courtyard outside Benedict Hall


We aim to create a community of faith and learning in which:

  • values such as those on the Scottish Parliament's Mace - Compassion, Justice, Wisdom and Integrity - permeate all our policies, actions and interactions;
  • the needs of each pupil are at the centre of everything we do;
  • the same dignity and respect is accorded to every member of our community - pupils, staff, parents and visitors;
  • there is a culture of high expectations and praise to promote the best possible conditions for learning and teaching;
  • all have the opportunity and are encouraged to reach their full potential and to grow in wisdom and in grace.

We are proud to be associated with our

Partner Roman Catholic Primary Schools

In St Modan's High School education is about values first and everything else second. 


St Modan's has carried on a tradition of placing values at the centre of the school's aims and character development at the heart of the school's endeavours.


The first Rector JL Foxworthy spoke in 1933 of encouraging pupils to develop "a sensible pride and a desire for something noble and worthwhile." As the present school community prepares to face up to the new challenges of the 21st century - a new building on a new site - we could do worse than look to our forebears for inspiration.


It is our hope that they would find in our School Aims ideas that they would applaud and values that they would share; that they would find in our current endeavours, achievements that they would recognise and standards that they would endorse.

Parents are always welcome at St Modan's and for this reason we operate a 'drop-in' invitation. you are very welcome to phone the school during normal school hours to make an appointment if you have a concern.


Please note: under normal circumstances we would recommend that you should contact your child's PSD teacher in the first instance if you have any concerns as this is the member of staff who knows your child best and will have all relevant information to hand.


However, no appointment is necessary after 3.00pm for a matter which is urgent - there is usually a member of the Senior Management available from then until after 5pm.


We would greatly appreciate such informal contacts with parents and prospective parents
