Admissions

The school roll contains approximately 1200 pupils, and there are almost 90 teachers on staff.

History

The school is named after Sir John de Graham, a leader in the army of William Wallace.

In 1998, it was decided by the Scottish Executive that five local schools, including Graeme High School, would be rebuilt. Graeme High was rebuilt on the playing fields east of the original school. In August 2000 the replacement school was opened by the then First Minister Donald Dewar. At the time the Public Private Partnership scheme (PFI) project that included the rebuilding of Graeme High was one of the largest in the UK.

Traditions

There are three houses — Lockhart (whose colour is Red), Morrison (whose colour is Yellow) and Steele (whose colour is Purple) — which are named after the first three rectors of Graeme High School.
