About Duncanrig Secondary School

Duncanrig is a six-year comprehensive school and was the first secondary school created following the establishment of the "New Town of East Kilbride". It is non-denominational and provides a wide range of secondary education for both boys and girls.

There are four stages in Duncanrig

First Year - induction year with access to a wide curricular experience and an element of pupil selection available as a youngster moves from S1 to S2
Middle School - comprising Second and Third Year
Upper School - comprising Fourth and Fifth year
Sixth Year - a year in which each student has a quite individual experience

The original school was opened in August l956. At that time it comprised 5 separate buildings spread across a single campus.

The local authority has recently completed the construction of our new school on the existing site. Our new school, costing in excess of £22 million, has been purpose built to accomodate the original cohort from Duncanrig Secondary School and the pupils of nearby Ballerup High School which closed in May 2005.

The merger of the 2 schools has yielded a single, unified group of staff and pupils who will continue to strive for excellence in all areas of school achievement. 

We took possession of our new school in August 2007 and we are all impressed by the tremendous facilities and resources available in this state-of-the-art, purpose built accommodation. No more travelling between buildings in all weathers, the school is designed as a single unit offering the latest facilities on the existing campus
