Welcome to our school
Drumchapel High School is a comprehensive non-denominational school serving the community of Drumchapel which is situated in the west of Glasgow. Drumchapel has undergone, and continues to undergo, major regeneration and Drumchapel High School is in an ideal position to be at the heart of this regeneration process. As part of the rebuilding of the community Drumchapel High School moved into a purpose built new school about five years ago, with space for 850 pupils.
Drumchapel High School welcomes young people from first year through to sixth year, regardless of ability, ethnicity or religious belief. We offer a full curriculum with presentation at all levels. We are also developing strong links with local colleges, with a view to enhancing the curriculum to meet the needs of all our pupils.
The school is very well equipped with many rooms having a digital projector and interactive white board. The PE department has a large games hall, two gyms and a football pitch, and our home economics department enjoys considerable success in hospitality qualifications, including the prestigious culinary excellence programme. Every pupil has an e-mail address with access to a protected intranet.
Our school uniform has the main colour of black, with red and white, as chosen by the pupils in 1992. All pupils wear the uniform of black formal trousers or skirt, white shirt and tie and black shoes. As in line with Glasgow City Council Policy, football colours are not allowed during the school day or at any school activity.
The school was inspected by Her Majesty’s inspectors of Education in November 2011. A copy of the Report can be viewed on their website:
