Head Teacher
10 mins from the classroom..

A fantastic opportunity awaits at our great wee school for someone with enthusiasm and an adventurous spirit. What teacher wouldn’t like life in a beautiful environment with a bunch of  bright, happy, confident kids who are keen to learn?  Great HMI reports, great track record  (one ex pupil got top marks in the Highlands with 6 A’s in her Highers earlier this month) and there’s lots of music, interest in history and the world around.  And with fab home-cooked school dinners, supportive parents, loads of community spirit, there is much fun to be had here. Bring your kayak, your wellies and your imagination.

Flying the Flag for Coigach Kids

Designed by Achiltibuie Primary School

Last year, children at Achiltibuie Primary School led by Local Development Officer Linda Macleod had a go at designing a flag for Coigach. Their designs were all so good it was difficult to pick one – so we’ve used them all!

Achiltibuie Primary School is currently looking for a new Head Teacher. Highland Council will probably be recruiting for this exiting post soon so if you would like to know more, get in touch and we’ll let you know when it is advertised or watch this space: we’ll post the appropriate links when they are available. Apart from our wonderful children, and fantastic enviroment this job comes with a school house – over looking the Summer Isles.  Hullo Mr or Ms Chips!
