Introduction and Welcome
Welcome to Wallace High School – a modern Scottish comprehensive situated at the heart of historic Stirling. We are a community of over 1,100 pupils, with our catchment encompassing six main associated Primary schools: Bridge of Allan, Castleview, Cornton, Fallin, Raploch and Riverside. We are immensely proud of our school and our wider community. On a daily basis we seek to promote the following qualities as essential to a vibrant, successful school community where everyone can achieve:
- Attitude: choosing to adopt a positive attitude.
- Effort: always working hard to achieve our potential.
- Values and Relationships: promoting values such as mutual respect and altruism (caring for others above ourselves) in order to foster positive relationships.
- Collective Ethos: the understanding that we are all stronger when we work together to foster a collective enjoyment of our learning day-to-day that, in turn, maximises achievement.
We also work very hard to provide a curriculum that is stimulating, relevant and rewarding for all of our young people as part of the Broad General Education (S1-3) and our Senior Phase (S4-6). Examples of this across the school are plentiful and we are particularly proud of partnerships we have formed to enrich the curriculum. These include, to name but a few key examples:
School of Sport: as a Scottish School of Sport our pupils from S1-3 can access an enhanced curriculum through specialist coaching due to our excellent partnerships.
Developing the Young Workforce Partnerships: our pupils and staff work with a range of partners, including from S1 to S6 to develop enterprise and employability skills and experience a real context to promote enterprising learning.
Sistema Scotland: a number of our pupils work with the Big Noise project in the Raploch, which has seen their dedication to music gain national recognition.
