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!
Good luck to Lorna Stillie and Rosie Duthie who take part in the ESU Junior Debating semi-final at the school on Monday evening.
S3 pupils will be involved in supproting three Silver Surfer sessions in Milngavie Libbrary this week as part of Adult Learners' Week.
As part of our S2 Modern Studies course our pupils are participating in The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative. This is an excellent our opportunity to provide our pupils with a skills based experience which provides them with the skills to assess the needs of their community and make grants to grassroots, community based charities. This engages our pupils with the development needs of our community. Our challenges through YPI completely underpin the four capacities of a Curriculum for Excellence, developing Confident Individuals, Successful learners, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors.
Good luck to the six teams competing in the final of the S1 Inter-class literary quiz on Monday during period 6.
