A very warm welcome to Carrongrange High School. Carrongrange is an Additional Support Needs secondary school in Falkirk Council. Carrongrange High School accommodates pupils with Additional Support Needs. The school is currently based in Larbert and is attached to Larbert High School. In August 2017 we will be moving to our new school in Grangemouth.

The school has a large variety of Life Long Learning courses that are run on a Friday morning and the pupils are actively encouraged to pick different choices that interests and encourages them to grow in confidence and self-esteem.
Our New High School (Aug 2017)
Construction work on a brand new secondary school for young people with additional support needs in Falkirk started in July 2016.
The Education Executive at Falkirk Council has approved the final proposals for the new £17.5 million Carrongrange School, which will accommodate 190 pupils.
The project is being led by hub East Central Scotland in partnership with Falkirk Council, Scottish Futures Trust and Ogilvie Construction and is due for completion in August 2017.
Gary Bushnell, Chief Executive, hub East Central Scotland, said: “Our team has worked closely with Falkirk Council to progress these plans and we look forward to delivering a high quality learning environment that has been specifically designed to meet the needs of pupils and staff.”
Robert Naylor, Director of Children’s Services, Falkirk Council, said: "The new school will provide pupils with a welcoming and flexible learning environment across two floors and will include modern specialist classroom equipment and facilities to meet the needs of pupils.”
Here are a few pictures of how the school is coming on.
