Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome from the Head Teacher

Thank you for your interest in our school; I am delighted to welcome you to the website for Dumbarton Academy. I hope that you will find that our website contains useful and interesting information about our school. We are continuing to develop and update our school website, so please be sure to visit regularly.

In Dumbarton Academy, our vision is Striving for Excellence. We have an ethos of aspiration, ambition and have high expectations for all of our learners. Our shared values of Curiosity, Ambition, Respect and Equality underpin daily life in our school. We remember these by saying We CARE.

We offer a nurturing, caring environment for all of our young people and staff, where we are all encouraged to continue our learning journey. Our curriculum offers a wide range of courses across the Broad General Education and into the Senior Phase, allowing a breadth of choices for our pupils. We have an extensive range of extra curricular activities and clubs and encourage our young people to get involved.

We have excellent relationships with our four associated primary schools: Aitkenbar Primary, Braehead Primary, Dalreoch Primary and Knoxland Primary. We work effectively and collaboratively to improve the experience for all learners across our Local Learning Community.

We value the partnerships we build with parents/carers and consider these as essential in ensuring that our young people attain and achieve to the best of their abilities.

Should you wish further information about our school, please contact the School Office.

Mrs Alison Boyles
