Gourock High School

Gourock High School is a non-denominational comprehensive school catering for boys and girls, 11-18 years of age, located in Gourock, Renfrewshire, Scotland. The school teaches around 630 pupils. The school motto is 'Honor Diligentiae Praemium.' which means 'The Reward for hard work is renown'. Willie Todd has been Headteacher since February 2008.

The school was ranked 22nd in a listing of the top 50 secondary schools in Scotland in 2005. [ [http://extras.timesonline.co.uk/pdfs/top50statescotland.pdf "The top 50 state secondary schools in Scotland"] , The Times]

It is currently proposed that Gourock High School and Greenock Academy should close with pupils from both schools moving to a new merged school to be named Bayhill Secondary School, which is to be built on the site currently occupied by St Columba’s High School.
