A Fine Education
We're justifiably proud of our educational record in Inverness and the Highlands. High standards have seen a large proportion of school leavers going on to further education and the city's 22 primary and 5 secondary schools all have strong links with their communities.
Being committed to the development of the Gaelic language the Highland Council also offers pupils the opportunity of a Gaelic medium education. The first purpose-built ‘all-Gaelic’ school in Scotland - Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Inbhir Nis offers both primary level and nursery education while Gaelic fro learners is available through 3 Inverness secondary schools.
There is also Moray Firth Tutorial College, which offers a wide ranging part-time education programme including evening classes, adults and children's courses, private individual tuition and Seniors only classes.
At the further or higher education level, Inverness College, part of the new University of the Highlands and Islands which is headquartered in the city, offers a wide range of full time courses and degree programmes.
