Douglas Academy is a six year non-denominational, co-educational, comprehensive secondary school which serves the Milngavie, Craigton and Baldernock areas situated to the northwest of Glasgow. We are also a Centre of Excellence offering specialist provision in music for gifted young musicians. We aim to provide an educational experience of the highest quality.
We value our young people and are proud of their many accomplishments. We offer our young people a stimulating and challenging learning and teaching environment and a host of opportunities to achieve in the widest sense.
Our Gaelic school motto is Neart Tre Eolas meaning “Strength through Knowledge”. We wish our young people to develop strength of conviction, strength of purpose and strength of self. We wish them to become knowledgeable about the world and knowledgeable in the world so that when they leave us they are ready to change the world!
A list of clubs and activities currently running in the school is attached! Venues and times for some events are still fluid: check noticeboards and assemblies for details!
At the beginning of this year, 3 students from Douglas Academy went on a 17 day trip to China. Read their story here.
Due to the absence of Mr Black (Head Teacher), we will be appointing an Acting Head Teacher to cover the school in his absence.
Congratulations to all pupils and staff who have reached the end of week 1! Plenty more excitement to come!
