Welcome to Lornshill Academy

We hope this website will provide you with useful information as well as celebrating the work of the school.

Headteacher's Welcome

I am very pleased to welcome you to Lornshill Academy’s website. I hope you find it informative and easy to use. We have streamlined our approach to communication using both our website and our new school app. Together, they provide the means for us to keep you up to date with the information you need, when you need it. We look forward to engaging more with you as we continue on this journey.

Lornshill Academy is a six year comprehensive school, situated between the village of Tullibody and Alloa with a student roll of around 1130. Within our learning community we are fully committed to providing opportunities for every pupil to achieve success, to make friends, to discover new talents and to develop new skills.

We offer opportunities for your child to take part in a wide range of activities including sports, music, drama, and cultural activities in addition to the academic life of the school. In return we ask that your child shows us commitment, works hard, sets high expectations and takes responsibility for supporting our school community.

Our teachers, support staff and many partners are hard-working, caring and devote many hours of their time to providing excellent learning experiences including clubs and activities outside the normal school day. Positive relationships with all our partners are core to our success and you will always be made to feel welcome within our school.

School Entrance Closed From 3.30pm


Scottish Gas Networks will be carrying out essential maintenance work outside the school from 3:30pm this afternoon.  This will mean that the main entrance to the school car park will be closed from that time.  The work is scheduled to be completed over the weekend but may continue in to Monday.  If the works continue in to Monday then the following arrangements will be in place:

  • Parents/carers should use the designated school drop off point on the main road next to the bus stop on the same side as the school.  Pupils should then walk up to school alongside the running track.  There will be no access to the car park for parents at the beginning of the school day.
  • School buses will drop pupils off on the main road outside the school and pupils will then be escorted across the road by our Campus Police Officers and directed up to school.
  • Only staff will be able to access the school car park via the alternative entrance.
If the works are completed over the weekend then our normal operating procedures will be in place.  If there is any further update then we will let you know as soon as we possible can.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

Technical issue: website

We hve recently been made aware that the Contact Us form on the website has not been working. Whilst we look into this with the website developers, the Contact Us form has been removed from the website. In the meantime, if you have contacted the school via the website and have not had a response, can you give us a call and we will redirect you to the relevant person to deal with your query. Alternatively, the 'Email The School' function on the school app is still operational.
