Information about the school
Balfron High School is a fully comprehensive, non-denominational six-year school. Situated at the foot of the Campsie Fells, with glorious views towards the mountains of Perthshire, the school serves the largely rural district of West Stirlingshire.
Our catchment area stretches from the River Forth near Aberfoyle in the North, to the Milngavie border of Strathclyde in the South and from Kippen in the East to the shores of Loch Lomond in the West. Although it lies in a rural setting, the school is only 19 miles from both Stirling and Glasgow and the parents of many pupils are employed in these centres.
The mixture of pupils with both rural and urban links serves to underline the comprehensive nature of the school.
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.
