Welcome to James Gillespie's High School Parent Council website

The Parent Council exists to represent all parents and carers. Our work includes:

- working with other Secondary School Parent Councils in making representations to the City Council on the Education Budget
- putting forward parents' views on the new school building project and decant
- providing refreshments at school events and parent consultation evenings
- providing input to the school on matters such as timetabling

If there are other areas of interest, that’s fine too. All ideas are welcome.
