Grove Academy is a secondary school in Broughty Ferry, Dundee. One of the most academically successful schools in Scotland, it enrolls approximately 1200 pupils, the majority of which are from Forthill, Eastern, and Barnhill primary schools. The old Grove Academy Centenary Building is no longer used by the school, and together with old Main Building it is now Eastern Primary. The old Annexe is now Grove Health Centre.
In 2007, construction began on completely new buildings on the site of the Extension Buildings and huts. The buildings were designed by the Holmes Partnership built under a public-private partnership. It is maintained by Robertson Facilities Management. An equity stake in the school is retained by private investors. Phase 1 opened 2008 and Phase 2 opened in November 2009. The new school is now completed and was formally opened in March 2010 by the First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond.
