A little bit of History!
Bankier School is built on the site of the old Bankier House which had been in ruins since November 1962.

The new Bankier School was officially opened on 20th April,1965. Mr J R Mackay was appointed first head teacher of the school. He had come to the district in January 1956 to be the head teacher at Longcroft Junior Secondary School. In June 1959, the secondary part of the school was closed and the pupils transferred to the new Denny High School. Mr Mackay remained the head teacher of Longcroft Primary School until the new Bankier School was opened.He retired in January 1971,when Mr Ian R Hunter took his place. Mr Hunter left Bankier in October 1978. That same year, Mrs Helen Hall became head teacher of Bankier School. Mrs Armstrong took over reigns in 1982 before passing them onto Miss Duncan in 1992. Mrs Dyer became the Head Teacher, in 1998.  Mrs Ritchie is currently the Head Teacher having taken over from Mrs Dyer following her retirement in 2018.
