Headteacher

The school head is Mrs Elaine Cook, who joined the school in 2007. She is not to be confused with the member of the deputy team, Mrs Susan Cook.

Feeder Schools

Until October 2010, the feeder primary schools were Deans Primary, Carmondean Primary, Meldrum Primary and Knightsridge Primary. It was confirmed in October 2010 that Seafield Primary had joined the list of feeder primaries when the catchment areas were redrawn.

Re-Development

A new school building was built on the grounds of the old sports fields and entered use towards the end of 2009. The old building was demolished early in 2010 and new sports fields will be created on the old school site. The construction work was carried out by Dawn Construction.

The school has a swimming pool and adjacent cafe (both of which are open to the public), a theatre, and rooms available for community activities.

When the building of Meldrum Primary School was closed for the rebuilding project, the school community was temporarily rehoused within one of the upper wings of the new Deans Community High School building. They are expected to move into the new Meldrum Primary building in January 2012.

HMIE Inspection

In 2005, HMIE undertook an inspection of the school.[1] The inspection showed that the school had made significant progress since the last inspection, improving in every section. it also stated that "The school and education authority had made good progress in responding to the points for action in the inspection report. The school had put very high priority on developing approaches to raise attainment and there was evidence of continued improvement."
