To All Pupils, Parents, Staff and Partners of Renfrew High School

I wanted to let you know that I will be moving on to a new role after the October holiday. It has been a privilege to lead Renfrew High School for the past 10 years and I am very proud of everything we have achieved together. The school is in a strong position to continue to develop and we are fortunate to have many committed and talented staff who work so well with our wonderful children and young people.

The new role is a senior leadership post in a national organisation which supports mental health and wellbeing, with a focus on improvement for children and young people in Scotland.

Renfrewshire Council will now look to recruit a new head teacher, initially on an acting basis, and I will keep everyone informed of progress.

I will write to you again to reflect on our time together as part of this school community, however in the meantime please accept my thanks for all the support given to me in my time as head teacher.

Best wishes,



Billy Burke

Head Teacher
