Millburn Academy

One of the principal secondary schools in the city of Inverness, Millburn Academy was established in 1961 as Millburn Junior Secondary School, next to the Mill Burn, a mile (1.5 km) east of the city centre. In 1976 the name of the school was changed to Millburn Academy and, from 1979, it extended its remit to encompass a six-year curriculum and educate pupils until the age of 18. With a roll of 1118 pupils and 115 members of staff (2015), Millburn Academy now serves those districts of Inverness lying to the east of the River Ness and the rural areas to the south of the city.

Funded through a public-private partnership, a new £26-million school was built on the old school's playing fields and opened on 3rd November, 2008. The state-of-the-art three-storey building has a range of classrooms with specialist facilities, a four-court games hall, a gymnasium, dance studio, a library, a performance venue and facilities for pupils with additional support needs. The site of the old school has subsequently been redeveloped to provide new playing fields, including an astroturf pitch.
