Alloa Academy is a six-year state-funded comprehensive school, serving the city of Alloa in Clackmannanshire, Scotland. Its roll has dropped to below 700 pupils. It has three primary schools associated with it: Redwell, Sunnyside and Park. It also welcomes pupils from St Mary's Primary. The school currently has 89 teaching staff. The pupil intake varies from a middle class area to an area of severe deprivation.[1] The school moved location after Christmas 2008. The old building in the Claremont area of Alloa was built in 1859, opened by her majesty Queen Victoria and demolished in 2010. The new school is adjacent to the Gasworks and nuclear waste reprocessing plant. The school is in view of the River Forth and the local sewage plant and municipal dump.
