Our Lady's High School is a six-year Roman Catholic co-educational comprehensive school which opened in 1968. It caters for pupils living in Cumbernauld, Muirhead, Cardowan and Stepps and in addition to pupils from Condorrat, Dullatur, Moodiesburn and Castlecary.[1] The school's emblem is a post-modern artistic recreation of the Virgin and child.

History[edit]

Prior to its opening in 1968 there was no Roman Catholic high school in Cumbernauld and pupils had to make a 10-mile bus journey to Kirkintilloch to attend St. Ninian's.

The school has always maintained a strong link with the surrounding community, and through pupils, parents and teacher links they are associated with several primary schools from which the intake is drawn:

  • St Margaret of Scotland Primary School, Cumbernauld
  • St Lucy's Primary School, Abronhill
  • St Mary's Primary School, Ravenswood
  • St Joseph's Primary School, Stepps
  • St Barbara's Primary School, Muirhead
  • St Andrew's Primary School, Cumbernauld

The former Sacred Heart Primary in Kildrum was also a feeder primary till its closure in 2000.

Houses[edit]

The pupils are split into 5 different Houses - St Margaret of Scotland, St John Ogilvie, St Thenew, St Mungo and St Columba.
