About the school

Grangemouth High School serves the town of Grangemouth in east central Scotland.  Grangemouth is a town which is justly proud of its industrial heritage; it is a major port and is the centre of Scotland’s petro-chemical industry.

Grangemouth High School is a non-denominational six-year comprehensive school with a roll of around 810.  The majority of pupils come from the three primary schools in the town, with some placing requests  from other areas.  Over 75% of S4 pupils stay on for S5, and around 60% of them stay on for S6.  The school has full provision for pupils with additional support needs, including integrated provision for pupils with communication difficulties, and has been built with appropriate facilities for disabled people.

Pupils at Grangemouth High School benefit from a very positive ethos and a supportive and caring environment, where all pupils are encouraged to do their best, both in terms of formal attainment and in areas of wider achievement.  

The school plays an important role in a vibrant community and has an active Parent Council and support group.  Parents are welcome in the school at all times and are encouraged to share in the life of the school.  The school has strong links with local industry and commerce and is often involved in partnership projects within the community.
