A very warm welcome to McLaren High School

McLaren High School is a non-denominational school with a current roll of 625 pupils.  McLaren High has been in existence since 1892 and is situated on the southern edge of Callander.  Pupils from the twelve primary schools in our “cluster” transfer to McLaren High School and they are joined by a number of pupils whose parents have made a placing request.

McLaren High School has highly professional teaching and support staff, with high expectations for our pupils.  We are committed to working with parents to support and challenge our pupils to succeed in learning and to develop as confident young citizens.  

Following the Education Scotland Inspection of our school in October 2017 we have now received the letter and evaluations below.

The Good Schools Guide reviewed McLaren High School as:

.... a much admired school. In its idyllic situation, a close knit community in heart of romantic landscape, the ‘very positive ethos of the school based on its core values and high quality relationships between staff and pupils seems hardly surprising. It is, however, a well-organized and self-critical school as well as warm-hearted, doing a sound job for a very diverse population.
