Denny High School in Scotland is a non-denominational public secondary school.

The school was opened in 1959, and moved to a new building in February 2009. The new school contains a gymnasium, swimming pool and drama studio.

The school serves an area of 25 square miles (65 km2) around the area of Denny, including Bonnybridge, Dunipace, Banknock and Dennyloanhead. In 2004, Denny High School had a roll of 1316 pupils and 95 teachers. It also employed 34 non-teaching staff.

Community Schools Project

In 2004, it was decided by the Scottish Executive that eight local schools, including Denny High School, would be given the chance of rebuilding or refurbishment. The school was rebuilt on the Herbertshire Playing Fields on the eastern outskirts of Denny, a few minutes from the town centre.

The construction work of the new school started in October 2006. This was completed in February 2009.
