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 J Yuille, is the leader of a Senior Management team consisting of five 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.

The school actively encourages pupils to join in extra-curricular activities. It is an important element of a broad education, and particularly in the early years, for pupils to participate in at least one activity. This can do a great deal to help the pupil identify with the school, make new friends and gain in personal confidence.

Activities currently on offer include:

Sporting: Badminton, jogging, athletics, football (boys and girls), crosscountry, hockey, netball, table-tennis, rugby and volleyball.

Musical: Band, choir, discos and dances, and musical instruction.

Other: Computer club, Crime Prevention, Debating Society, Chess, Drama, Scripture Union, and Theatre Outings.

These activities are organised on a voluntary basis by parents and members of staff who have always given generously of their time. The school, and the pupils who benefit from such goodwill, are grateful to them.

In addition to the above, other out of school visits related to the curriculum take place throughout the year and there are opportunities for groups to travel abroad. Written parental approval is always sought for visits out of school; all such visits are organised in accordance with Council guidelines for out-of-school visits.
