Plockton High School is a 300 pupil high school in the village of Plockton, Scotland. The catchment area for the school stretches from Applecross in the north to Glenelg in the south. Since the opening of the Skye Bridge, increasing numbers of pupils from South Skye, who would have traditionally gone to Portree High School, have instead attended Plockton High School. The school has a small hostel to cater for pupils who live far away.

Sgoil Chiùil na Gàidhealtachd[edit]

Since its inauguration in 2000, Sgoil Chiùil na Gàidhealtachd (National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music) has been located at the High School and is a music school in Scotland. Any secondary school age pupil in Scotland can apply, and students from all over Scotland attend, most of whom stay in the school's hostel.
