About the school
Our school is set within the Borestone community. To the rear of the school we have views of fields, hills and the Robert the Bruce monument at the Bannockburn battlefield site. We have extensive playing fields and are situated in an ideal environment for children to be involved in both rural and town studies. The outdoor environment is used by staff to extend learning experiences, whenever possible and appropriate.
Our school was built during the 1950s and officially opened in 1959. Regular work on the building has ensured that both the exterior and interior of the school have been updated.
Education Scotland has responsibility for evaluating the quality of pre-school education, all schools, teacher education, community learning and development, further education and local authorities. They also publish reports about services for children and evaluate child protection services.
Each school has it own geographic area called a catchment area. Normally, your child will attend your local catchment school. If you wish your child to attend a school other than the catchment school you are required to make a placing request.
