Our school is a secondary, co-educational, non denominational, comprehensive, community school serving the town of Carluke and the neighbouring villages of Braidwood, Forth, Law, Kilncadzow and Yieldshields in rural South Lanarkshire approximately 25 miles south east of Glasgow.
We have approximately 1,200 pupils ranging in age from 12 to 18 and a teaching staff of just over 100 teachers. We offer a broad, balanced curriculum delivered by 5 faculties and 6 teaching departments, a well equipped Library Resource Centre and 3 ICT Rooms.
The Rector, Mr A Smith appointed in 2013, is the leader of a Senior Management team consisting of four Depute Head Teachers.
In November 2007 we moved into a brand new purpose built school which has been constructed on the former playing fields. The main feature of the new school is the 'street area', from which the teaching wings lead off. The 'street' acts as a social hub for the school, providing a flexible, open and airy space that shall have a variety of purposes. In addition to assembly, dining and social functions, the assembly/stage area provides a teaching and learning space for music and drama.
Each of the teaching blocks is separated by a landscaped courtyard, and our pupils have been heavily involved in designing these. The new playing fields are to be constructed on the site of the original school.
