This site is intended to record the memories of former pupils, teachers and staff at Clydebank High School.

It's not just for those who knew the Shelley Drive building — perhaps you knew its predecessors or maybe you are now working or learning at the new Janetta Street building.

So what are we looking for? Photographs, stories, memories, school publications and newspaper cuttings. Perhaps you can think of something else, if so just contact us using the contact button at the top right of the page.

However you know CHS and from what ever time period please feel free to have a look around the site and please contribute! Without you, this site will never flourish!

We hope to hear from you soon!

Robert, Jim and all of the oldchs.co.uk team.
