Wallace High School
About the school
Wallace High School was founded in 1971 as a six-year comprehensive, non-denominational school to serve the north side of Stirling, the old Burgh of Bridge of Allan and the village of Fallin. The University of Stirling lies within the school’s traditional catchment area and there are close links between the two institutions.
In April 2008 we moved to our new building on Airthrey Road. The new Wallace High School gives us excellent facilities in a light, bright environment. All classrooms are well equipped and there is a high level of IT resources.
The front of the school has lovely views of the Wallace Monument from which the school takes its name.
Ochil House within Wallace High School caters for S1-S6 students with severe and complex additional support needs.
The curriculum is designed to meet the learning needs of each individual pupil. A range of teaching and learning experiences are used, supported by specialist teaching staff and external agencies.
Ochil House staff make use of all available school facilities and promote an inclusive approach. Additionally, pupils benefit from regular educational excursions such as organised trips or exploring the local community.
Gaelic Medium provision is continued at Wallace High School (from Riverside Primary School) where young people have the opportunity to progress their learning from S1-S3 into the Senior Phase leading to the award of National Qualifications.
Parents interested in accessing Gaelic Medium Primary provision should contact the school for further information.
Each school has its 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.
