Buchanan High School is a non-denominational school situated in the Townhead area of Coatbridge. It caters for young people with a range of additional support needs. It is a purpose built establishment, built in 2012. It has superb practical teaching areas and purpose built classrooms. Our provision is enhanced by a superb outdoor space which supports many aspects of outdoor learning. Our school is co located with St Ambrose High School and Townhead Community Centre. We enjoy links with St Ambrose High School and promote activities which foster inclusion and opportunities to share information, resources and good practice. We follow the principles of Curriculum for Excellence: a broad general education in S1-S3 and the Senior Phase in S4- S6. Vocational opportunities are also important in the senior curriculum.

At present our role is 101 pupils, aged from 12-18, mainly drawn from Airdrie and Coatbridge. Many of our young people are transported to school by local authority buses or by taxi. Some of our older pupils travel independently.

We work closely with families and a range of agencies to support our young people in developing knowledge and skills and to become as independent as possible in their community.

We have a very supportive Parent Council.
