About us

If you’re looking at our website, you may well have a young person in mind. Maybe you’ve been working around a mainstream educational model and it's been challenging to make it work?

At Ochil Tower School we have a long history of providing a nurturing educational environment that recognises the need to approach education in a different way so that it’s bespoke for each individual.

Our children, young people and young adults are aged between 8 and 21. They have moderate, severe or complex needs, and are often on the autistic spectrum. We offer a model of education and care that integrates a Curriculum for Excellence and Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC). Our varied, creative programme is designed to maximise their potential and help them prepare for adult life. With the opening of our new Life Skills Centre for 18-21 year olds, we have a resource that gives our young people the best possible transition and preparation for early adulthood.
