Administrative history

Balfron High School grew out of the old Parish School of Balfron. In 1919, the school became an intermediate, or "Higher Grade" school, and additional building was constructed. In 1925, it was upgraded to a full six-year secondary school and the name changed to Balfron High School. For 125 years, the main school buildings were situated on a rather restricted site between Cotton Street and Roman Road. In August 2001, a new building was completed.
