Since 2013, Marc Fleming, BA (applied consumer studies), SQH. He was previously depute head of Dalziel High and prior to that taught home economics at Galashields Academy and the Community School of Auchterarder. Quietly charming but surprisingly passionate, he is a lover of the hills and outdoor spaces and is keen to promote this within the school. The school covers one of the biggest rural catchments areas in Scotland and is the only secondary in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.


There are 11 feeder primaries. Half of the pupils live in Callander. The other half are from a wide and varied rural catchment area. Parents tend to work in hospitality, farming, forestry, gillies, tourism.
