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.
