The school was built in the 1970s and there have been many attempts to refurbish it, however this never happened due to a lack of funding.
One notable feature of the school is that, per student, Park Mains receives the lowest amount of funding out of all the schools in Renfrewshire. However, it is highly regarded as one of the best - particularly in terms of attainment, HM Inspection and leadership. Park Mains High School also has a very reputable Music department, which is maintained by Albert Sloan.
Park Mains High School is scheduled for major refurbishment work in 2008. Things are moving quickly and architects have been appointed, who are liaising with the Head Teacher to get the work underway as soon as possible.
Head Teacher since 1995, Bob Fawkes retired at the end of June 2008 and will be replaced some time in the new school term. In light of this, Mrs Valerie Mackay is Acting Head Teacher from August 2008.
