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 waiting is over and the opening ceremony for the XX Commonwealth Games is only hours away! Good luck to all the members of the school community who are involved from welcoming the athletes and spectators at Glasgow Airport, selling programmes, driving guests around the venues, working in the venues during Games time, and guiding visitors around the city! Our best wishes go to our former pupils who will represent Scotland in their events! Look out for them!
