Information about the school
Bannockburn High School is a six-year, non-denominational comprehensive school serving the communities of Bannockburn, Braehead, Broomridge, Whins of Milton, Hillpark, Plean and Cowie.
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.
Bannockburn had a population of 7352 at the time of the 2001 census.
The area contains most necessary amenities, including a library and local shops. It is served by Bannockburn Primary School, in the centre of the community, and Bannockburn High School in nearby Broomridge. Several new private housing schemes have been built in and around Bannockburn since the 1990s, increasing pressure on the already-overcrowded high school. As a result of this, Bannockburn High School has, in 2007 and 2008, been extended to provide additional capacity.
Probably between the Pelstream and Bannock burns (hence Bannockburn), was the site of the Battle of Bannockburn fought in 1314—one of the pivotal battles of the 13th/14th century Wars of Independence between the kingdoms of Scotland and England. A large monument and visitor centre is located near the site of the battle.
Bannockburn and Hillpark have two amateur football teams, Bannockburn Amateurs and Milton Amateurs FC
Bannockburn also hosts its own Rugby Club. Formerly known as St Modans HSFP RFC
Bannockburn also plays host to St Modans HSFP Cricket Club.
