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!
The presentation from the S4/5 curriculum evening is now available from Quick Links on this page. And from this message....
Artist of the Month for January is Anna Shackley!
Our thoughts are with the pupils and staff of the French school party from Lyon who were involved in the avalanche in the Alps.
All Douglas Academy staff and pupils on the trip are fine.
A current list of some of the activities and opportunities available in the school is attached to this note. A good chance to follow up on those New Year resolutions!
