Wallace High School in Causewayhead, Stirling, Scotland.

It was founded in 1971 to serve northern and north-eastern Stirling. The catchment area is currently: Bridge of Allan, Castleview, Cornton, Fallin, Raploch and Riverside. The University of Stirling is in close proximity, and the school has formed strong links with the institution. Wallace High School is one of seven secondary schools in the Stirling Council area.[2]

In 2008 the school moved from its initial location on Dumyat Road to a new building on Airthrey Road which was funded by a public private partnership. It is located close to the famous Wallace Monument, which commemorates the Scottish patriot Sir William Wallace.The old school site will be used for a new housing development.

The school has roughly 916 pupils and operates a house system.[1] The three houses are Airthrey, Logie and Powis, which are both for social and administrative purposes. Airthrey is Red, Logie is Blue and Powis is Yellow. The school is also colour coded with Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) and Social Subjects (Geography, History and Modern Studies) situated in Airthrey (red), Music, Design and Engineering (Graphic Communication and Design and Manufacture), Art, Computing Science, Business and Maths in Logie (blue) and finally, RMPS (Religious Moral and Philosophical Education), Home Economics, Modern Languages (English, French and Spanish) and PE (Physical Education) in Powis (yellow).
