Information 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, based at Wallace High School, has provision for secondary aged children who have severe and complex additional needs, require significant support for their learning and a high level of coordination from other agencies.
High School - Gaelic education
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.
Ochil House has provision for secondary aged children who require significant support for their learning and a high level of coordination from other agencies. The young people, where appropriate, will join in mainstream activities, usually to enhance social skills and to provide opportunities for wider friendships.
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.
Causewayhead, a village in Stirling and Logie parishes, at the end of Stirling Long Causeway. It has a station on the railway and a post office under Stirling. The Wallace Monument dominates the area looking down on the village.
Completed in 1869 after eight years' construction, the 220 feet high Wallace Monument sits prominently on the Abbey Craig two miles north of the city of Stirling itself. It was from this prominent hilltop in 1297 that William Wallace watched the English army approach across Stirling Bridge before leading the Scots into the battle of the same name: and victory. A fitting, and striking, location for the national monument to a national hero.
