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!
Congratulations to Samuel Milne, Iona Paterson, Meera Kaiser and Sandy Christie who took part in the Strathclyde University Junior Debating competition on Saturday. Samuel and Iona were narrowly beaten in the final by a team from St Columba's School, Kilmalcolm.
Good luck to Emma Johnston, Alisha Wright and Sophie and Hannah Vennard who compete in the first round of the Debating Matters competition this evening in Douglas Academy.
