Castlehead High School is a state secondary school in the district Castlehead; town of Paisley, Renfrewshire, in the West of Scotland, United Kingdom.

In 1967, the Castlehead High School served as the temporary Paisley Police Station, since when the old prison on Gilmour Street was scheduled to be demolished, construction of their new Cotton Street Police offices was behind schedule.


Castlehead is one of six Scottish Football Association "Schools of Football". Under this program, twenty first-year students receive daily coaching, development and recovery sessions and other academic and social development activities. The "Schools of Football" program is funded through the Scottish Football Association's partnership with "Cashback For Communities", a Scottish Government scheme which gives communities illicit monies seized from criminals.

On 08 September 2008, Castlehead hosted the draw for the first round of the 2008/09 Scottish Cup. [cite web|url=||accessdate=2008-09-18]


*One area of the schools performance that had been identified as needing improvement on the 2005 evaluation was attendance. In recognition of the effort the school faculty, students and parents made, in 2006 the school won the Scottish Education Award: "Better Behaviour and Attendance Award". [cite web|url=|title=Scottish Education Awards|accessdate=2008-09-18]
*Philip Lawrence Award, in recognition of the school's paired reading program where senior pupils help junior pupils develop their reading skills.


On June 19, 2008, Castlehead was in the news, after a student was hit in the head by a hammer that was hurled into the playground. The female second-year student was seriously injured. [cite web|url=|title= Paisley Daily Express| accessdate = 2008-09-18]
