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.
