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 co-ordination from other agencies. 

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.

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.

School inspections

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.

Catchment areas 

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.
