The first Stirling Episcopal School was situated in Baker Street and held 90 pupils. In 1854, funds were raised to purchase a property in St Mary Wynd to house 120 pupils in a new episcopal school.
The introduction of the Education (Scotland) Act in 1872 offered the school the opportunity to join the state system under the management of a School Board. This offer was declined with concerns of church teaching practices being absent under the Act.
The Education (Scotland) Act 1918 offered the Holy Trinity Episocpal School better terms that the 1872 Act had done. The School was transferred to Stirling County Council who would meet all expenses. The Vestry could also guarantee that appointed teachers would be qualified to give the Episcopalian religious education.
In 1935, a decision was agreed between the Rector and the Director of Education that the Advanced Division of the Day School should be transferred to Riverside where better facilities would be available.
In 2005, the school was closed and pupils sent to Allan's, Raploch and Riverside schools. The school building was completely refurbished to provide accommodation for homeless people.

Bridge of Allan, a town less that three miles from the centre of Stirling, was created a police burgh in 1870 under the General Police and Improvement (Scotland) Act 1862 (25 & 26 Vict., c. 101). Under the Act the administration of the burgh was to be carried out by police commissioners who were responsible for the cleansing, lighting, policing and public health of the burgh. Bridge of Allan was at that time a growing Victorian town, famed for its location and as a spa resort. Its population grew from 1803 in 1861 to 3055 in 1871. During the 20th century it continued to attract tourists and also became the location for the University of Stirling. Under the Town Councils (Scotland) Act 1900 (63 & 64 Vict., c. 49) the police commissioners were replaced by the Town Council in January 1901. Bridge of Allan Town Council was abolished in 1975 under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 (c. 65). Its powers were assumed by Central Regional Council and Stirling District Council. These in turn were replaced by Stirling Council in 1996 under the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 (c. 39).
