Balfron High School grew out of the old Parish Church of Balfron, which can be traced back to the 17th century. In the early years of the 20th century, there was a strong desire in the local area that there should be a school, which could provide a full secondary education for the whole of West Stirlingshire. In 1919, the school became an intermediate, or “Higher Grade” school, and additional building took place. In 1925, it was upgraded to a full six-year secondary school and the name changed to Balfron High School. For 125 years the main school buildings were situated on a rather restricted site between Cotton Street and Roman Road. In August 2001, a completely new building was completed, providing the young people of West Stirlingshire with a school, which has already become a benchmark for school buildings of the future. The Balfron Campus provides much more than a daytime schools, however. It is an outstanding community facility which is open for fourteen hours a day, fifty weeks of the year, offering the whole community unrivalled opportunity for lifelong learning, sports and leisure facilities and arts and cultural activities.
