Welcome to the website of West Calder High School.


Our successful school of approximately 970 pupils, serving the Calders areas in Livingston and Polbeth. At West Calder HS, we value our learning, our relationships and our positive attitudes, which I hope you will see coming through in the various pages of this website.

As well as securing consistently good exam results overall we have a large number of pupils who are successful in other ways too, including in a wide variety of sports and music and, for example, in demonstrating leadership and good citizenship around the school and the community.

We aim to ensure that all of our students leave not only with the best possible academic qualifications but also with the resilience and confidence required to be successful in further and higher education and in the world of work.

I hope you enjoy browsing the site. Please use the 'contact us' pages to get in touch with us if you would like to ask a question or suggest other items for inclusion.
