Turnbull High School is a co-educational comprehensive Secondary School located in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow, Scotland. It was founded in August 1976 and named after William Turnbull, Bishop of Glasgow from 1448 to 1454, and founder of the University of Glasgow in 1451, of which he was the first Chancellor. Whilst enrollment is open to pupils of all religious denominations and none, the School's religious ethos emphasises practice of Roman Catholic moral values both in the church and in the community, with its own Chaplain and many associated charitable and community-based activities undertaken.
Turnbull High School has been consistently ranked amongst the top 40 of Scotland's 376 state secondary schools in recent years, with attainment levels for both Standard Grade and Scottish Qualifications Certificate examinations routinely above the national average. The school also has a reputation for sporting excellence, particularly in Association football, with several alumni playing at a professional level.
