Kirkland High School's origins lie in three secondary schools which served local communities for several generations. When a secondary school was built in Methil in 1963/64 staff and pupils from Aberhill, Leven and Kennoway moved into the newly named Kirkland Junior High School which, in due course, became Kirkland High School, a full six-year comprehensive. In 1990, in a unique initiative in Fife, a Community College was also established leading to the creation of our present Kirkland High School and Community College.
The modern building in addition to normal classroom facilities contains a large assembly hall with stage and specialist areas for Art, Technical Education, Home Economics, Business Studies, Computing and Science.
For Physical Education there are two gymnasia, a swimming pool, a large games hall, two squash courts (one fully equipped as a multi gym) and an all weather pitch. In recent years ramp facilities and a lift have been provided to assist disabled persons take full advantage of the facilities.
We have an excellent Library Resources area and up to date departments of Business Studies and Computing providing excellent facilities for private study, careers information, flexible learning, Computing and Business Studies courses.
