Welcome from Head Teacher 


I would like to welcome you to the Drummond School, Inverness website; we hope you find the information helpful. We have been in our wonderful new school for around six years. The facilities and resources are truly exceptional, the staff and pupils have been given the opportunity to work in a school very much fit for purpose and therefore it is our aim to work towards offering high quality experiences for all of our learners.

pic 1We are a school for pupils with additional support needs (ASN). All of our pupils have severe learning difficulties and many have severe and complex needs. The school has a capacity for over 90 pupils in 20 classes . We have provision for nursery, primary and secondary education. We follow the Curriculum for Excellence framework.

Drummond School is situated in the Drummond/Lochardil area of Inverness but our pupils come from all areas of Inverness. All pupils are transported to and from the school. This transport always has an escort included in the service. Parents also transport their children to and from the school where appropriate.

Please note that there are two other Special Schools in Highland Education Authority pic 2and many of the local Primary and Secondary schools have ASN provision. Not all pupils who have ASN would automatically attend Drummond School.

The school is committed to working in partnership with parents as well as with all of the other significant partner agencies. We operate a Home/School diary communication system.

The school is managed by the Senior Management Team of the Head Teacher and two Depute Head Teachers. There are also three Principal Teachers. The school currently has a teaching staff of 23 Teachers (including those in the four subject areas of Art, Music, Home Economics and Physical Education) and we have forty Additional Support Needs Assistants who are central to the support and education of all pupils within the school.

pic 3We have our own large swimming pool and hydrotherapy pool run by the Pool Manager and two additional Leisure Assistants. The pool is also used by groups of children and young people with ASN in the Inverness area.

Please click on Classes on our site menu above to see our full range of facilities.
