Broughton High School News & Events

'Oxford Explained' Presentation

We have news of an opportunity for students and their parents to meet with a representative from the University of Oxford at an event in Edinburgh on 4 September.


Hire of School Sports Facilities

The City of Edinburgh Council have recently asked Edinburgh Leisure to process block bookings for sports clubs at all High Schools.  This is a separate piece of work to the ongoing conversations about ‘operational transfer’ of High School sports facilities to Edinburgh Leisure to operate community time (after 6.00pm weekdays, weekends and holiday periods).

Accordingly, if you are a sports club, group or organisation and wish to make a block booking of a high school sport facility, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 0131 458 2212.

Work Experience Courses @ Scottish Gas

Scottish Gas are running two week-long work experience courses in Edinburgh which will start on 31 July.

Thes courses may be suitable for students who are finishing school, college or university soon and looking for a work experience opportunity during July and August. Although unpaid, these great opportunities can help people if they are trapped in the vicious circle of being unable to get a job because they don’t have experience,  but they can’t get experience because they don’t have a job. Our programmes are designed to help people gain new skills and experience to help them into the world of work or further education.  

Criteria :

  • Aged 16-24
  • Not in employment, education or training during the 2 week programme
  • No unspent convictions
