LGBT Inclusive Education
The Scottish government is committed to LGBT inclusive education and Renfrew High engages in this as part of our work to promote wellbeing, equality and inclusion for all. We accept every individual for who they are, celebrate diversity and challenge any form of discrimination.

Renfrew High LGBT Youth Scotland Charter
We are committed to promoting a positive and diverse culture in which all people are valued and supported to fulfil their potential, irrespective of their gender identity or sexual orientation.
To support this, we have been working with the charity LGBT Youth Scotland on our charter journey since 2019. We are delighted that we achieved the Gold Charter Award in 2023. This award is recognition of our dedication to LGBT+ inclusion, which is embedded in our school ethos and promoted through the curriculum.
